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.
