What is the first PC game you bought? (not necessarily the first you played)

Command & Conquer Tiberiun Sun and International Rally Champioship. Bought them at the same day.

The Secret of Monkey Island. I think?

When I was like, 12, my friends and I used to buy games, install them, and return at Egghead for another game; rinse repeat.

Good times.

I think CIV II was the first PC game I actually bought with my "own" money...Gosh I had a lot of fun playing that game... Will it work on Windows 8 I wonder?

Street Fighter II for PC

The original version of SFII, so this meant

- No playing as Balrog, Vega, Sagat, or Bison
- No alternate colors, so P1 and P2 couldn't play as the same character
- Stripped-down movesets (Dhalsim couldn't teleport, for example)

In addition, due to technical limitations, you could select to have sound effects, or have music, but not both. I paid $80 for it.

First I bought? Hmmm...

It might have been Diablo. Before that, it was my parents computer, so I didn't buy anything myself, or I acquired it in some other way.

The first game I ever bought was Winter Games on the Commodore 64. Went in 50/50 with my brother.

Sonic 3 and Knuckles or Sonic R or Sonic 3D Blast. I can't remember which of the three I got first but I was like 5 and saved as much money as I could until my parents decided to buy it for me for trying.
