Computer game survey swiped from Shirtless Kitchen Welsh Tom
Which was your first system?
Well... when I was a toddler, my dad had this computer hooked up to a TV, and I played a couple games on that (Moon Rover was one of them). It's one of my earliest memories - buying chocolate and popcorn from a boy scout, then sitting in front of the computer with my dad and playing those old computer games...
Moon Rover was one, I forget the other's name
