I got my first PC in June of 1996. It was a Pentium 133 with 32 MB RAM and an S3 Trio64V+ which came with DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.11. I was happily playing DOS games on it for about a year or so, not even considering that "newfangled" Win95. Some of my friends had it already, but it wasn't exactly stable on their rigs, so I was in no rush to install it.
However, one game changed all that - the original Diablo. It just blew me away. The super crisp graphics, the awesome music, the cool cinematics and the addictive gameplay... I just had to play that. So I installed Windows 95 on my rig, and it worked well enough, though I did get some crashes here and there. At that time, it started becoming clear to me that all new games would require Win95.
Anyhow, I'm wondering what was everyone's reason for upgrading to Windows 95? Was it a specific game? And when exactly did you upgrade?
