My First Game
I was first introduced to Computer when i was in class 8 , some 7 years back . My father finally decided that it was time to buy one and purchased an HCL machine ( cyrix 233 Mhz , 16 MB Ram , 4 GB harddisk ) , quite decent configuration compared to that time . At that time i had no idea about computers , what the heck was “windows ” , i even didnt know how to operate a mouse . The next few months i was busy exploring the computer, learning all the new things like MS DOS , Microsoft Office etc . I had heard about the computer games but my father had instructed not to install a single one ( guess he was afraid it would spoil my studies ……he thinks so even now ) . Finally one day i decided to buy a tech magazine . I had heard about PC quest from my friends so i decided to go for that one but when i asked the vendor , it was not with him at that time and he gave me chip ( previous name of “digit” ) .
I went home immediately and took out the cd . After few hours i finally managed to install a game called Hopkins FBI . It was detective game of adventure genre ( didnt know about the game genres at that time ) and i had huge fun playing it along with my friends . Managed to complete the demo in 4-5 days . After 2-3 years when i had mastered the art of gaming , i decided to buy the full version of the game . I searched various shops and on the internet but was unable to locate it . Even today i would sometimes enquire about this game from various shop keepers hoping i would be able to play and complete it one day.
