Awful for todays time sure, but back then it was probably more than managable.
I don't really know what my first one was but it had a floppy drive. And by floppy drive I mean a 5 1/4 inch drive. As in this:
I had several games on it.
One was a racing game that had it's own joystick.
One was a winter olympic game that had this stupid code wheel thing (which I of course lost and then the game was useless). I couldn't find the actual one, but it was just like this:
Basically the game gives you 3 words and when you match those three words up along the edges of the wheel a "code" is revealed along the inside. Then you had to put that code in to start the game.
It also had a Wheel of Fortune game, but with a limited puzzle selection after playing it for awhile you eventually would be able to solve the puzzle without even guessing any letters.
I had SimFarm, which I played the crap out of.
I also had a Megaman game that I sucked at, but got really good at one level. I forget which one, but it was the only one I could beat so I just played it over and over and over....
I had to exit Windows and go to a DOS prompt and enter some commands to play all of these games.
