Sadly I never played Commander Keen. While automotan and Sopes were playing that I was probably playing Super Mario Land. Because I got my own PC much later I only played those games at Sopes’s house. Games like Test Drive III and Sim City. My gaming path had a lot of non-traditional detours. I bought an NES after the 3D0 and Genesis then sold it along with The Legend of Zelda and the full map I made on grid paper.
I’m sure there were others out there like me. Like this guy. Maybe he’s only had Super Mario Land his whole life. Look at that fucker go.
