Castles 2 or SimFarm. I think so anyway.

Stellar 7. I actually bought it because of the display box, never knew it was a battle-zone in color.

Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn

I had some extra cash and bought it on a whim cause I'd heard lost of positive things about the first Baldur's Gate.
I hated it at first. I had no knowledge of the D&D rules, I didn't understand the mechanics and I was used to playing JRPGs on consoles which are so flashy and easy to get into in comparison.

I stuck with it, I read through the massive manual, familiarized myself with the D&D rules and once I finally understood the game, I fell in love.
It's one of my best gaming experiences and one of the best games I've played to this day .

SimAnt. In 1991 I believe. Well, I got it as a gift from my parents anyway. I didn't have enough of an allowance at 7 years old to buy $50-$70 video games, which in 1991 would be like buying a $120 game. Buying games on a regular basis was kind of rare back then unless your parents were upper middle class, which few people become until they have about 20-30 years of work experience. It was common to rent a game from a local rental store for $1-$2 on weekends. Also people would just copy PC games onto floppy discs and share them with each other. The anti-piracy features they had were pretty easily bypassed. I think the first PC game I bought with my allowance was Command and Conquer: Red Alert. And the first PC game I bought with money I made from a job was Diablo 2.
