@robby C was one of my first languages and has been a love of mine for a long time.
for me what did it was starting with assembly language and then viewing C as a better way for me to write low level stuff. i really dig the unfettered access that C gives to the foundational primitives (memory, cpu, etc.). it probably helped that i was hacking on 16bit cpus at the time XD
hope that helps at least give another perspective =)

someone: hey, could you do this thing for me?
me: no, and i'm only saying that because the cost of branch prediction is too high.
