    My video game poisons were Goldeneye and Ocarina of time on the 64. For the SNES they were Final Fantasy 3 and Chrono Trigger. No telling how many hours of my life I wasted on those games!

    Developing application programs in machine language for Intel's 4004...

    When computers had no hard drives. And when we got to beta test a new program in college called windows. We never thought it would catch on but the flying windows were neat.

    Ya shinobi was unreal, Mortal kombat series was awesome too, chrono trigger I remember being great, same with Zelda and goldeneye. Ghostbusters for sega or snes, was a good one, robocop vs the terminator was one of my favs. Also FIFA soccer, mutant league football, wolfenstein, doom, duke nukem, and star fox.
