You are correct, the dates given are for the first version. Where in Time, for example, was originally released in 1989 and ported to the NES in 1991.

The 1983 version was released for the old PCs, on 5 1/4" floppys... running in monochrome (the graphics were so bad i could never make anything out) on 2 or 4 Mhz processers. This was before computers could even handle a decent DOS, so you had to boot from the disks, meaning the only way to start another program was to turn off the computer. My question is: if you always saw her henchmen, letting you know that you were on the right track, how come you never caught and tortured one of them to find out directly were she was, instead of chasing her all over the world/US/Time/Space/etc ?

Are you suggesting they should've been shipped off to Guantanamo and have been waterboarded? Rolling Eyes

I used to sit and watch my dad play that all the time. He wouldn't let me play it though.

does anyone remember hitler saying something like "Die, LA-Trainhund!" in wolfenstein3d? the voices were all obviously spoken by non-german people, and so everything sounded crazy, but that certain sentence combined with the picture of a schwarzenegger-style hitler with two gatlings under his arms was burnt in my head to stay there forever.


*die, LA trainhund!*

I believe I played the original Carmen Sandiego on an Atari 8-bit computer way back in the day. Tho it's not on the list. So I'm likely misremembering. It's one of the few games my parents actually bought us (as opposed to something my uncle downloaded from a BBS and put on a floppy).

Never could finish the damn game.

"Oregon Trail" on the green-screen.

I rocked at Oregon Trail. That was like my favorite part of school, right there, was playing Oregon Trail. I mean seriously, it was awesome.

I only ever died in horrible ways a few times, even.

I even remember the switch from the old black and green computers to the newer ones with actual colors... it was crazy. I remember thinking "Man, technology sure is cool."
