I know a lot of people out there probably did not get into Wing Commander until later in the series, but I would love to hear people's stories about what they went through to experience Wing Commander for the first time. Did you have to upgrade your computer? Did you have to BUY a computer? Did you wait around until the inferior Super Nintendo version came out? I was an old Commodore Amiga guy back in the late eighties, and I remember reading about Wing Commander in PC Gaming Monthly, and I knew I was in love right away. I saw a tech demo for WC down at a little mom and pop computer store, and I was so blown away that I immediately put my Amiga 500 up for sale and all the software that went with it. It took me a while, but I finally unloaded it. I saved and saved and finally was able to buy my first 486 25 MHz PC with 250 meg hard drive and the works (at the time). I think it was somewhere in the neighborhood of $1500.00, but I had my copy of Wing Commander and I never looked back.
