I was around 10 and was given two of the games as a gifts, probably because I had a few ND books I read and loved. I fell in love and remember being so excited when I realized there was a whole series of games to play! 13 years later and I shamelessly buy every one within a few weeks of them being released :) I can’t wait til I have kids so I can introduce them to the books and computer games!
I was introduced to Nancy Drew when I was seven years old and my mom handed me The Hidden Staircase. A year later, the host of a party I’d been dragged to asked if I’d ever played the computer games. I spent the rest of the party in their computer room playing Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake and not letting any of the other kids take a turn.
My 5th grade GLO (some kind of gifted and talented class. I don’t know how to explain it!) teacher would have us play the ND games on the 3 computers in the room when we had free time. Now keep in mind, this was back in 2001-2002, so there were only the 5 classic ND games at the time! She printed out walkthroughs and highlighted the important stuff for us. Since it was during freetime, we never played all 5 games all the way through, just little bits of each game that was on the computer at the time.
After 5th grade, I kind of forgot about the games, but I would always read the ND books! I fell in love with them. Then in high school, I thought back to that GLO class and started searching for the games. ND games quickly became a regular birthday, Christmas, and for whatever reason present from my parents because they knew how much I loved them!
I am now 22 and in my 5th year of college and still love the games. I haven’t stopped since I refound the love for them in high school! I own and have played all the games! I now have a routine! Play the game on junior detective (yes, I still call it that even though they changed it), watch Arglefumph’s blind playthrough, watch Arglefumph’s walkthrough, then replay on Senior detective!
WARNING: Major spoilers.
Jamila: Sonny, he’s special.
Is this foreshadowing something? Such as rumours of meeting Sonny Joon in the future?

Oh yeah just running through a red light like its the best thing in the world. Weeeeee look at all the fucks I give!
