    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.
