How long has Scott be playing computer games?

Let see I have been playing computer games from the time before there were any. I had to write them if I wanted to play them. Actually first I had to build my own computer THEN write the games.

My first home computer was a Sphere. (they came out same time as Altair) It was a kit. 

I built and designed a graphic video card for this machine so I could then write a tank war game for it. I also built two hand controllers. The card and game also won the first annual "What do you use your Sphere for?" contest.

I also remember putting Star Trek on the tracking monitors of a SDC RADAR station I worked at downrange. I used to play after hours when they were not tracking satellites. I had to use the tracking monitors as everything else was Teletype 35.

I guess you can say I really love computer gaming.
