    Nineteen eighty-four? I don’t think the graphics were that good back then. Nineteen ninety-four, maybe!

    That’s from King’s Quest, still my favorite computer game. And yes, the graphics were that good, even if it was 1984.

    1981: IBM CGA, 640×200, 16 colors
    1984: IBM EGA, 640×350, 16 colors
    1984: Hercules Graphics Card, 720×350, B&W
    1984: Apple Macintosh, 512×342, B&W
    1987: IBM VGA, 640×480, 16 colors
    1990: IBM XGA, 1024×768, 256 color

    In conclusion, graphics were that good (barely) in 1984, TV quality in 1987, and much better in 1990.

    1979: Got driver’s license.
    1981: Turned 18 legal to drink alcohol.
    Those are the two things that saved me from becoming addicted to computer/video games.

    Yep… had an 8-bit Atari 800XL in the 80’s that looked pretty much like that.

    Apparently you have not read the book. i read “1984” as a teenager. and recently re-read in on my Galaxy S4 tablet. (What a blessing – the technology that allows me to enlarge the type to the point that my tired old eyes can actually read it. But I digress)
    As I remember the year 1984, it actually was not anything at all similar
    to what the book predicted. In some ways, the book was more predictive. And in other ways, we are already way ahead of what was predicted .
