The new game giveaway has a 90s technology theme to it, so it made me curious what were the stand out items of kit you had back in the 90s?
The main one of mine would be my IBM Aptiva PC powered by a IBM/Cyrix P166+ that I overclocked to the same config as the P200+ version and added a Voodoo2 card and some extra RAM to since it only had onboard ATi graphics and 8MB RAM. I had 32MB RAM and also added a 20GB Samsung Spinpoint HDD
It came with Windows 95(b) which I upgraded to Windows 98 Second Edition with Plus Pack eventually. It was great for Tomb Raider and Geoff Cramond's Microprose Grand Prix 2 (along with the studying I should have been doing) but also original DOOM, Lemmings 3D and Worms
It was also the first system I dabbled with Linux on a cover CD from PC Plus Magazine. It was an early build of SUSE Linux pre-Novell days with KDE very much still a work in progress
Then there was the original PlayStation which I got analog controllers for and a steering wheel and pedals. Gran Turismo, Porsche Challenge and Crash Bandicoot were my favourites but I also enjoyed MediEvil and Tomb Raider games on that too.
I still have the PlayStation but also an original Nintendo Game Boy with magnifier light and a few games that still work, Tetris came with it and I was hooked back in the day, but Super Mario 2 and Donkey Kong Country were excellent.
My PlayStation was hooked up to a 14" Sony CRT via a SCART adapter cable and the sound went through my HiFi. My gaming 'chair' for the PlayStation was a bean bag
