For some of us, computer games still feel like a fairly recent phenomenon. As far as kids (and young adults) who have grown up using computers are concerned, they have always been around.
I had a conversation today with a friend and we were talking about the games we used to play back in the days when the Commodore 64 was the big name in computers and we both got all nostalgic about some of those games.
My favorites were always the "interactive fiction" genre. I liked the challenge of deciding what to do next and the snarky comments the game would make when you "chose poorly."
So, I did a bit of digging around on the net and found that many of those games are available on-line. Strictly based on games I played, here is a list of five.
I guess, in radio terms, here are five "oldies but goodies." You can go to a link to play any of these games by clicking on the game picture!
