50 ... Started simming in 1986 with Sublogic Flight Simulator II on the Commodore 64 ...  then Flight Unlimited I/II & MSFS 95/98 in the 90s ...  FSX in 2000s ... P3D & XP in 2010s ... and MSFS since 2020.

I remember back in 1984, I had a Radio Shack Color Computer that could run a very early version of Flight Simulator. But the sim required 32K of system RAM back then. Not 32 megs or 32 gigs of memory, mind you -- but 32K. But my computer only had 4K of memory -- that's 4096 bytes. I simply couldn't afford 32K of memory. And if inflation continues, I may once again be in that predicament.
