Frogger, on a mac, 1985...

Then there was a LONG gap, then I played some sorta RC Pro Am type of game on a C64 or 128 in 1988... then another long gap, and in 1991 I played Commander Keen on my uncle's freshly built 386...

By '92 I had a PC (Hyundai 286-12, ATI graphics card, 40mb HD) and had been bitten by the gaming bug...

... and I always stayed away from Oregon Trail....

I think you mean "Adventure" aka "Pirate Adventure" on the TI-99/4A. And "River Raid" was on the Atari 2600...you beat "River Raid" IIRC, think you took a picture of the TV at the time. You also beat "Adventure" and were up so late doing it that I think you were stuck to the chair you'd sat in all night.

"Adventure" was my first game too. That, or one of the many 2600 games.

BTW, I may download the TI-994A emulator and try to beat "Adventure" myself now. Here's a neat blog entry along these lines.

I personally believe that us americans are unable to do so because osama.

People out there in our nation don't have that, And I believe that our education like such as south africa and such as the Iraq.

everywhere "such as". And I believe our education should help the US should help the south africa and the iraq and the asian countries so we can build up our future.

I had DOS 4.01/DOS Shell all set up to launch all my games... I got sad when I learned how bloated DOS 4.01 was, though, and was happy to switch to 5, but missed launching apps the easy way...
