PC Beginnings

Unwinnable - My parents began shopping for our family’s second computer in the middle of 1997. I remember accompanying them into our local Circuit City and looking at all the brands they had to offer: Compaq, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, along with many other brands that no longer exist. I never quite understood why my parents wanted a PC; they are (or were) old-fashioned types, immigrants from Mexico, living in a community surrounded by like-minded people. Perhaps my eldest brother, who worked daily with computers, had shown them what the devices had to offer. Whatever the reason was, I was ecstatic. I’d finally have my chance to play these awesome computer games, which had been beckoning me with their remarkable visuals and their entrancing box art. (PC)
