Hope they enjoy their presents. The first computer role playing game I got was on Christmas '89. And lots of fond memories playing D&D this time of year.

Nice! 1989 was a good year for RPGs - which one was it Dorateen? I got Space Rogue on the c64 that year and spent many hours slooooooowly making my way around the galaxy. Very impressive at the time. Curse of the Azure Bonds came out that year but I think it was a few years later when I got it.

Around 1989, I moved up (I feel it was a step up) from my c128 to an amiga 500 with the memory expansion card to a whole 1MB (512k + the expansion 512k). I was playing PoR on it and I could use the numpad to move in combat which was really nice compared to c64 mode movement in PoR. I got the memory expansion mostly so I could play Dragon's Lair which was the coolest graphics game at the time, haha :lol:

Might & Magic II. And then Pool of Radiance shortly thereafter. That started a run of playing some amazing cRPGs throughout the early to mid nineties.

That's a great introduction to the genre! I only got into Might and Magic much later on, I wish I'd played them on release, I would have loved them.
