Brutal Gamer writes - "For the lucky 13th edition of Lookin' Back, I take a trip back to the very beginning of my gaming life.
Gather round for a story, children. I am in my mid-20s and I've been playing games for most of my life up to this point. When I was around 6 years old, I came home from school one day and got a drink and sat down on the couch in front of the box TV with my brother. My Dad came home from work and then he went upstairs with my Mum. They shouted for me and my brother to close our eyes and hold out our hands. They came downstairs and placed a huge box in our hands. We opened our eyes to find that we had been given our first ever computer. This computer was the Commodore Plus/4, and I remember being amazed and clueless at the same time. But hey, I was only 6."
