Not to date myself, but I started with Flight Simulator II... I remember it was used by my high school's Air Force ROTC... but I would beg them to let me use it.

You may say it all went downhill from there hahahah.

What about ping-pong with just the lines as paddles and a circle as a ball, black & white. Man those times must have been cool Very Happy

yeah Pong... I remember when my dad brought home a lil dinky atari with that on there, we thought we were the coolest kids on the block... our neighbor's kids would line up to try and beat me and my brother at it.

Nowadays I look back at that, and think about now when I cannot even beat my own daughter at Gran Turismo III... hahahaha. Heck my 7 year old son can whoop me in a race now.

I think you young'ins should be thankful... you have a LOT of good stuff to play with that you were basically born into... you did not have to live through the old days when we got FOUR color graphics and thought OMG we are TEH UBER!

Any of you old timers out there remember the Star Wars arcade game with vector graphics?

We were soooo cool back then hahahahahahahahaha.

Oh by the way... i STILL play pong... at work. We have it on our work computers... I guess they figure it is not TOO distracting. Confused

I tell you one thing... it was SIMPLE....

Not like now trying to get an ILS approach setup, or grinding to get your (insert profession class here) up to level 90 so you can take on the elite boss MOBs.
