Because I was dying to play this game (Knight Lore), but being too poor to buy a ZX Spectrum computer, I designed one (had to, the original ZX Spectrum was having all the logic inside a proprietary chip called ULA) and built my own clone when I was about 18. That built unintentionally became a game changer in my CV for my whole to come carrier. Games are definitely good for something! :mrgreen:



That game is running on a Z80 at 3.5MHz (0.0035 GHz) 8 bits 64kB processor. Both the video and the sound are generated by the processor (no VGA card, just a dual port RAM area and a 1 bit on/off for sound). That game was very impressive for that time, it was the '80s. :D



About a decade later, during the 90's, Half-Life arrived. Probably the most mind blowing game ever considering the year was 1998, and the PC hardware was very lame compared to today's standards.



That full 5 minutes long intro was a complete shock, then the anomaly experiment came, wow, that was gorgeous!
No game ever before has had anything even remotely alike.

I started Pathfinder: Kingmaker this week... only 550ish more games in my steam account that I haven't played yet.
