So games my parents played? Centipede and Frogger on the 5200 was Mom's.
I had a family friend named Charles. We got pretty close when I got my 386 in the early 1990's. He spent a whole day with me seeing what games I got and putting new games on my hard drive. Every weekend or other weekend after that I would literally pack up my 386 and visit his place. Then we would do sort of a software swap. It was because of him I discovered shareware games. Since he lived a rural area that got very little I usually had the cool commercial games. His area had a small computer shop that started carrying shareware programs (had a whole wall dedicated to shareware stuff). They would make their own disks and print out short manuals on how to install and play the games, all packaged in ziplock bags to protect them. Once we discovered Doom and Heretic we would setup local networks and play multiplayer games. Otherwise we would work together on some adventure games like the AD&D series from SSI or Wing Commander. He was always good about giving me his older computer parts to put in my 386 if they would fit and work. I still remember all the headaches we would go through trying to squeeze as much conventional RAM (640k and less) out of our systems so we could run some games.
At the time I was a teen, he was in his 30s. Computer stuff back then just seemed more interesting to me. It was always about faster processors, higher quality sound, more storage space, more memory, better graphics, better storage solutions (floppy, optical)...it seemed never ending. Now everything is pretty much the same. Instead of new hardware promoting development of better software the computer end is now having to be created or upgraded to use software that exceeds some computer setups. Seriously...dual graphics cards?!? And I thought the Diamond Multimedia graphics card I had back then was the bomb. I understand basic setups are just that...but a basic computer setup back then would at least play most of the games...now a basic setup might play one or two major game releases if you are lucky.
So...to recap again...Centipede and Frogger on the 5200 with Mom and on PC Doom, Heretic, AD&D, Wing Commander, Wolfenstein 3D, and there was one more I can't remember the name of on IBM PC with Charles.
