    In my case, I'd probably say soccer, outdoors. Or maybe basketball, or Frisbee. I don't really remember that far back. Anyways, if you meant digital games, it was a variety of kids games on CD ROM, though, I cant remember which. I think reader rabbit was one, a few Disney cartoon ones as well.

    Wow. This hurts it was so long ago. Our first family computer, an IBM XT - remember those? There were no commercial games then...a techie at work wrote two little games. One was making a flying saucer land safely on a little planet, controlled from the keyboard. The next was songs that could be played by pressing different keys, the music only single notes via the system beeper. This was before the mouse was developed for PCs. My kids thought this was the living end of fun.

    Thundercats on an Amstrad CPC6128.
    I can still remember the Amstrad commands and I didn't know how to write or read back then!
    I think I was 4 or 5 years old! (around 1989-1990)

    Atari 2600 Air Sea battle... Sears tele games. I was 7-8 years old. When I heard of Atari I thought it was a train set. I had 2 games for that system for over a year, Air Sea battle and Space invaders.. I could sit down with space invaders and go for many hours with out losing a life. I sat down for over 6 hours one day with it..

    Anyway it's history, I've pretty much owned every game system from then... Still play almost every day on my Xbox one X or my PS4...or even my gaming PC :) Waiting for the switch to drop in price a little and I'll grab one of those too.
