I played some of my first racing games on it, like: Midtown Madness 1 & 2, Monster Truck Madness 2, Driver etc.
Your answer doesn't answer your own question.
Maybe you meant to ask, "When did you get your first computer?", since that is what you answered.
I got my first computer by going to the Amiga store in October of 1992 driving my Dads 1988 Dodge Caravan 4cyl 5 Speed, and giving the people at the store $2500 for an Amiga 3000 and a Commodore 1950 14" Multisync Monitor.
Specs: 25mhz 68030 Processor, 6MB ram, 120MB SCSI Hard Drive, 880KB Floppy.
Added the following upgrades the next year:
14MB of ram (upping it to 20MB) $350
Video Toaster 4000 card ($2500 video card, the most expensive single add-on I have ever bought since)
345MB SCSI hard drive ($345) (required for the Toaster since the software was almost 100MB)
I ended up trading the Video Toaster card a couple of years later for a complete PC system so I bought a Picasso IV display card.
Picasso IV 24bit Display Card ($500)
The Picasso is not the same thing as the Video Toaster, the Toaster was an NTSC Video switcher, 4 Input, 2 output, and had a Digital Still Store.
I bought the Toaster only for Lightwave 3D, since that was the only way you could get that program.
When Lightwave was released by itself, I traded the Toaster card.
The Picasso card allowed for a higher color bitrate on the main desktop of the Amiga.
In 1996 I went completely PC and have been Windows only since, but, less than a week ago I put OSX on my Dell Mini 9 and have been impressed with it.
