Throwback Thursday - Early 90s PC Sounds, 80s PC Booters, & Kids React 70s Tech

Chris Higgins recently reminded us on mentalfloss.com how labored the sounds of a computer booting up were here, this one a "1993 PC Boot Up."



Working our way back a bit further, check out this list of 1980s "Booter Games" here.  One of my personal favorites was "Suspended: A Cryogenic Nightmare," "an interactive fiction video game written by Michael Berlyn and published by Infocom in 1983."


While we're on the subject, have a chuckle on how Kids React to a 1970s computer.  The screen shot is one explorer's expression while in search of a non-existent "mouse."



A look back at early tabletop hobby gaming
 or gaming-adjacent topics of the past.
