Gaming 1995: "Heroes Of Might And Magic" (Dell 486)

The first top-down turn-based strategy game I ever played (‘Civilisation’ left me cold, though my brother played it constantly), my brother recommended this one to me, and I must have played it all the way up to the fifth iteration.

But the original was always the best, despite the increasingly snazzy graphics of the sequels.

It was easy to pick up, didn't require too steep a learning curve, and the quite basic graphics were actually rather charming. It fueled my taste for these, and without it, I might never have picked up later strategy-type games like 'Command & Conquer'.
