Hey all. This is a nice forum. I've had countless computer questions over the years go unanswered....it can be just plain taxing and time consuming to really get adept if you work away from one most of the time, like me. Anyway... As the Apple || came to it's final days (prompting Steve Wozniak to leave the company), the IIGS hinted at a world of 16 bit applications, but sadly never had a chance to save the II series. I started out on these systems and still have a //c as well. Wondering if the ][GS might have collector value down the road... I grabbed the basic parts for a full unit, but lack most to all software for it... but have plenty of the 8bit stuff!
This is really just a light-hearted fond look back, but how do you suppose the // series might fare as years go by? Seems the early game consoles might have some value as they get more scarce, or as technology advances, people become more intrigued by gaming's origins. I point to Dan Gorlin's Choplifter all the time as a milestone in gaming I think. Anyone every recall Airheart? His very cool followup in 1986 on Broderbund Software, and of course... Their Loderunner games!
