[Error: unknown template qotd]I'll share two complementary quotes:

"Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes."
~ Oscar Wilde

"The tiger doesn't yell about his tigerness, he jumps on his prey and devours it."

I have been playing computer games ever since I developed the manual dexterity to do so.  However, this was in the mid-1980s, so they were unimpressive compared to the computer games we have now.  I don't remember the exact sequence of when I played what, but I remember being 3 or 4 and using a rudimentary drawing program using keystrokes (remember, this was before computer mice).  By the time I was 5, I had mastered Reader Rabbit, Math Rabbit, and The Mixed-Up Mother Goose, which I remember particularly fondly.  That game is how I know all the words to a ton of nursery rhymes and the electronic beep-beep version of their melodies.  Maybe that set the stage for me to enjoy story-based games.

We were not allowed to play games that involved killing anything (which I agree with 100%), nor were we allowed console games until my brother wore my parents down and they got him a PlayStation when he was in junior high.
