  1. I was hoping to see a screen shot of Raid on Bungling Bay. Any way, thanks for the look back at some of the games I played in college.

    Unbelievably I had somehow forgotten all about Mail Order Monsters. Thanks for the trip down memory lane, Jeff.

  7. Played the CRAP out of Telengard (and even now have the Windows version on my laptop for impromptu games). Let's see, had most of the Infocom stuff (loved The Lurking Horror - Lovecraftian text adventure? Yes please!), Psi-5 Trading Company, Law of the West, Adventure Construction Set, Realms of Impossibility, and Spell of Destruction pop to mind. I also was a contributor for QuestBusters for many years, specializing in C64 reviews.

    leave the comfort of the past.
    embrace the new.
    your time is always the now.

  9. -sigh-

    if you had just posted "here are some pictures I think look neat" then anonymous wouldn't have said anything. But you used the word "nostalgia" so you get this condescending bull.

    F___ing internet.

    I don't like nostalgia unless it's mine.

  11. leave the comfort of facelessness.
    embrace taking responsibility for your statements.
    your name is guaranty of better conduct.

    (Most of the time I have no problem with anonymous posters, but this one is rubbing me he wrong way. Maybe it because he seems able to read the word 'nostalgic' but not 'ridiculously' even though they are right next to each other.)

  12. waaah waah, someone posted something about some old computer games on a gaming blog. Let's all read into this post as much as possible. Jeff, you old fart, get your head out of your ass and look toward the fuuuuutuuuure!
