    You feel old? I remember when space invaders was the cutting edge… when computer graphics was a step up from shooting at static pictures as they scrolled by.

    I still remember Operation Wolf .. when you died, a loud voice proclaimed ‘you have suffered a fatal wound. Sorry, you are finished here’ for the entire arcade to hear!

    Let’s not forget Pong, one of the first arcade games to generate a home edition.

    Yes, I clearly remember pong game in the fast food restaurant, back in 1971 or 1972. It was the table top style, and the opponents sat on each end to turn the knobs. Those ‘Booop’ sounds got annoying. I remember years later all the kids lined up to play ‘Space Invaders,’ later ‘Galaxian,’ then ‘Pac Man.’ And those electronic pinball machines were an impressive change from the bells and numbered wheels that turned. Okay enough rambling from another ‘old’ person …

    It all started with “Pong”, Imagine a kid today paying to play that!

    You want to feel old, . . . More than half the country has never seen a rotary dial telephone!

    Ah, the good old days, when video games were fun and not nauseatingly violent!

    I would play a pinball machine with mechanical counters in a minute. Those were real arcade games!

    One of my first visits to an arcade, had the usual Centipede, Asteroids, Pac-Man, Space Invaders, etc….then I found Battlezone, where the action was 360 degrees AROUND you, not just on a 2-dimensional screen. I think it was the first game to put you in the MIDDLE of the playing field. You couldn’t tear me away from it.

    Space Invaders: the human has limited resources which he must use wisely. The computer has infinite resources which it uses stupidly.


    Sort of reminds me of dealing with a government agency.
