  1. That is so hard to estimate. I remember when we got an NES when it was new and playing SMB1 with my mom and brother. Definitely was already a gamer by then: I one-shot World 1-1 after they both died.

    My grandpa didn’t let us touch his 80/88 until we were 6 I think, so I’d bet it was a game on the Apple II+. Might have been Lemonade Stand, but that required reading and understanding some bit of supply and demand. Maybe it was just an Apple version of Pong, maybe Super Brickout?

  2. Once in 1990 I visited my dad’s office and played _Battle Chess_ on one of their 386s. Watching the pieces destroy each other in imaginative ways sparked a lifelong interest in videogames, chess and office work simultaneously.
