MAN. Looking at all these pictures of this period equipment, looking at how these guys were going about developing these games... I just keep thinking: these folks were living the DREAM! Man I wish I could have been working there, doing this, making these games... That just looks so amazingly fun!

Also, did anyone else notice that there was a picture of Michael Jackson in there, and yet we notice him second after looking at all these old computers? I just find that hilarious; the article doesn't even mention him, we're just looking at the old computers!

I still use Mario Paint as a quick, easy way to see what tiles will look like on an old CRT TV. It doesn't have as large a palette as I would like, but it does the trick for the most part.

That was fun , very interesting article I read it from beginning to the end. :D

First time I knew that designers used (Final result on CRT) as the core of design.
