Mine would be 'Arnhem - The Market Garden Operation', by CCS on the good old ZX Speccy, I may have played a few older wargames on that machine with UDG graphics, but this one actually looked pretty decent and was the first wargame I put any serious time into, playing with friends was a good experience as well.
I LOVED that game. And his other one, Operation Vulcan. It's my favourite Speecy game after (before?) Doomdark's Revenge...oh, and Atic Attack.
Played it over and over.
It was my first PC wargame (if one has a generous defintion of PC). I still have my old Speccy up in the attic
and a box full of cassettes of the old BASIC games I wrote and copied from magazines.
lol, same, only sometimes with a print error in the mag, the week of typing it all in and it didn't run, so you have to wait for the next months mag to get the fix and re do the typo and fix, my spectrum war game collection is almost complete, wrote by R. T. Smith's who has just released Oriental Empires on steam, i was a alpha and beta tester for him, and would have loved him to do a update to the game, but alas there is no money in it for him,
