In college I killed hours between classes with the original Sim City. It was a marvel to me, as were computers with mice. I still remember SHIFT-F U N D to get $1,000,000 in your city coffer. I also played a lot of Tetris and the game with the Mah Jongg tiles that isn't really Mah Jongg. I had email, but there was no such thing as internet for casual users. I missed the entire console evolution between Atari 5200 and PS3. I had no time and no money and sometimes no television. I did have my own PC starting around 1994, so I could always find pretty good discounted point and click adventure games and RPG's. You kids were spoiled.
