Heh. Not everybody thinks the same way, and some people just don't
react to games the way you (or I) do.

To a point, perhaps. But some of the old games were just _good_. My
own favourite is Tempest, one of the few colour vector games. 24
_kilo_bytes for the entire game, and it's still one of the most
engaging games I've ever played.

Me too - well, the first one; I think I haven't played the second. But
I like puzzle games. I also greatly enjoyed Swapper - the first new
game mechanic I'd seen since Portal, and its author(s?) built a highly
engaging puzzle game around it.
