The Games of 2011 vs 1986 - deadendthrills vs the PAST


I have been playing video games for such a long time, starting with a CGA Monitor in 1986 (I think!), and was amazed by my first play through of King Quest by Sierra in its glorious 4 colours (Magenta, cyan, white and black) at 320×200 pixel resolution. I did played with an Atari 2600 before that, but to be honest I was too young to have a good memory of the games I had, in my memory I really started playing video games with King Quest and Space quest. Looking how far have the games come its just amazing, there was no way to dream back then that these pictures will be from video games on a PC.
