>Earned yourself

I worked my ass off all summer for a landscaping company and nearly died of dehydration to make a handful of cash. The first thing I did with my first paycheck was buy some new shoes, some stuff to make hamburgers and fries, and a copy of Stronghold: Crusader.

God, that was a good weekend!

>his fucking face when

I'm so sorry Steven but honestly dude you never showered and you smelled like shit and your hair had more grease than a fucking deep fryer. And like five years later, when you went full goth and dressed like those swedish metalheads at eurovision, and you got that goth girlfriend, no one fucking cared because she was fat as fuck and her face looked like she'd just buried it in a box of pizza Shapes and no amount of black lipstick and eyeliner and white warpaint was going to hide it.

It's hard for me to say. I remember my first paycheck; it snagged me a new PS2 and GTA III. I was sixteen at the time.

"Earned?" When I was a kid I'd rake the neighbors' yards, stuff like that.

Then I'd bike to the mall and buy PC games.

I'll go with SimAnt.

When I was growing up I had a friend whose mother worked for Digital. That family had a dozen computers back when nobody had one yet. I remember those old Apple games, but I never had an Apple at my house.

Luckily this friend lived a few houses down. The first game on our first PC was pic related. I remember his mother trying to teach my mother how to install it and use DOS.

Ultimately they just taught me.

My nigga. Finally someone who was alive in the golden era. I was practically ready to suck cock to get the Simpson's game around that time. I still have all my old Nintendo power magazines I used to daydream over. Amazing how much a few pictures can make you imagine. Oh Jesus, little nemo adventures in slumberland! I am about to have a nostalgia ejaculation.

Define "earned"

If it was first game I bought with money from chores and stuff, then it would have been some ps1 game, I know I bought Crash 1 myself for cheap in 2000 after having 2, 3 and CTR but there may have been something earlier.

If "earned" means from an actual job, then I'm pretty sure it was Infamous 2.

When I finished high school I got a job, saved up to build a pc and bought Half Life 2 with it. So that, I guess. My parents bought me games as a kid, but I had to do chores and shit for them, but that doesn't really count.
