Did you get to see Wargames in theatres when it came out? I did and it has a special place in my nostalgic heart. Sure it hasn't exactly aged well, and may come off as really simplistic to someone out of its time, but it is actually the single most powerful movie for taking me back to the heyday of home-computing.

Home computers were around then but they weren't ubiquitous yet. This movie captures that time of birth... god I love the sound of Broderick's low-baud rotary modem connection... it's like Pavlov's dog for me... makes me all warm and fuzzy for a simple command prompt and a copy of Byte magazine.
