  1. I have problems with most CRT filters as they really don't look much like most of the TVs I grew up with. Instead of scan lines, several of them had a sort-of pincushion look to them (aperture-grille perhaps?).
  2. Humongous Entertainment did a lot of these sort of edutainment games: Putt-Putt Joins the Parade (1992) Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon (1993) Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo (1995) Putt Putt Travels Through Time (1997) Putt-Putt Enters the Race (1998) Putt-Putt Joins the Circus (2000) Freddi Fish and the Case of the Missing Kelp Seeds (1994) Freddi Fish 2: The Case of the Haunted Schoolhouse (1996) Freddi Fish 3: The Case of the Stolen Conch Shell (1998) Freddi Fish 4: The Case of the Hogfish Rustlers of Briny Gulch (1999) Freddi Fish 5: The Case of the Creature of Coral Cove (2001) Pajama Sam: No Need to Hide When It's Dark Outside (1996) Pajama Sam 2: Thunder and Lightning Aren't so Frightening (1998) Pajama Sam 3: You Are What You Eat from Your Head to Your Feet (2000) Pajama Sam: Life Is Rough When You Lose Your Stuff! (2003) Spy Fox in "Dry Cereal" (1997) Spy Fox 2: "Some Assembly Required" (1999) Spy Fox 3: "Operation Ozone" (2001) Fatty Bear's Birthday Surprise (1993)

  4. It interesting that no one has mentioned UltraVision who made Karate.
  5. I have to admit that it's an interesting suggestion.
  6. As far as I'm concerned, the only actual bad games are Racquetball and Skeet Shoot.

  8. I'd be hard presses to turn down any working system. Heck, I own many of the ones listed here that other people have said they'd turn down including the educational ones. And es, I do play them from time to time. (Maybe I'm just strange that way...)
  9. I'll go along with this. I've has more controllers than I'd care to count break down on me. They don't have to bee all that old, however. I have 3 non-functioning PlayStation 3 controllers next to me right now .
  10. If you want to make an NES game and don't know where to start, how about waiting a bit for this: http://austinmckinley.com/8bit/the-shop.html(NESmaker link) ?
  11. On the other hand, if he walked in and saw ET - Adventures at Sea, that might have been just the opposite. AAS is a pretty decent game that never left the proto stage apparently.
  12. I honestly like this artwork better than the artwork that went onto the actual cart label.
  13. I'm not certain if it makes any difference to you or not, however, there are hacks on the list (Boring, Donkey Kong, Boring Freeway, etc) listed as being by "ventrra" and others (Aster-Hawk, Tanks DX, Ventrra Invaders, etc) listed as being by "Charles Morgan". Since "ventrra" and "Charles Morgan" are the same person (me, in fact) you might consider making them read as by either one name or the other. (Or not? I don't really know how you might have decided to organize the listings...)
  14. Absolutely. Even if for just a historical perspective.
  15. Well, I guess I'll give some answers that are pretty far removed from most other people's here: NeXT: It helped get the power of UNIX under control early on. It's port to x86 architecture left something to be desired, however. OS/2: A better DOS than DOS and a better Windows (3.1) than Windows? Mostly true. The REXX language wasn't bad either. MacOS (Classic Era): This was helped by having some nice hi-rez (for the time) gray-scale monitors built into early Macs. I have to agree with WinME being among the worst OSs. I can't begin to tell you how many times I was asked to fix someone's computer that was running that junk.
