I grew up in the 1980s. That meant we drank far too much Kool-Aid, and on
Saturday mornings, we got up early to watch cartoons. It also was the
heyday of arcades, but I lived in the ghetto of Detroit and couldn't
afford quarters to play games. Plus, there were none anywhere near the
neighborhood where I lived. For me, the first real video-game experience
was the Atari 2600.
