I'm someone whose is getting into PC Gaming late in life (I worked for intel in CA and AZ in the late 1970's thru the mid 1980's), but I've played at computer games my entire adult life, starting with Crystal Caves, Mainframe version ported to an Intel 8080.

Worked in computer retail for about a year in the 1990's at a mom & pop store in Wichita, KS.
