It took me quite some time before I found it worth buying a PC as the Amiga lasted pretty long and I had other consoles to keep me going.
I played some nice games on my friends PC's, such as the continuation of the "Kings Quest" and "Space Quest" series, but they didn't impress me enough to buy one even if they were good games. I saw "Doom 2" and thought that finally the PC had come up to at least some kind of playable platform, but it still wasn't worth buying.

Even if I had no PC before 1996, I arranged gaming party's where my friends could bring their computers and play a bit of console on my 100" projector screen. But one day, they all hooked up their PC's and started playing "Duke Nukem 3D". That got my attention for sure! It had unusually high resolution1 which impressed me a lot. The gameplay was fantastic and the one-liners that Duke said was just hilarious! After that experience I bought a 200Mhz Pentium with Duke Nukem.
