I wasted countless hours playing these games as a child... I have many memories of them. They truly are one of the great games.
Commander Keen 1 was the first game I ever owned, my previous experience being playing "Dark Castle" on my father's black-and-white Mac.
I was instantly hooked and got my parents to get me the entire series for whatever the amazingly low price was back then ($30?).
It became the gateway drug into all the other games I've played since.
ID dropped my jaw again with the new engine in Keen4. It would be years after Wolf3D's release before I got to experience it because we only had an EGA display...at which point ID blew my mind again. Then DOOM jumped the bar, then Duke3d....truly this developer was a big deal for me.
If you have so many good memories, then don't use the word "wasted", try "spent" instead.
Makes a big difference.
