"Ever since ET for the Atari 2600 wowed gamers worldwide..."

ROFLMAO, what? That game nearly sank the entire gaming industry back then. There's even an ongoing urban legend that they had to bury all the copies no one wanted/bought in the desert because they didn't know what else to do with them. :P

it's obviously sarcasm.

I actually played ET on the 2600 when I was a kid. It's kind of amazing the state didn't intervene and place me in foster care.

Interesting article. I like that it mentioned The Last Starfighter and Starship Troopers.

Starship Troopers is a great book. In the book they used mecha suits.

Ah, I read this article the other day. Since reading, I've virtually been obsessed with the concept behind 'I have no mouth, and I must scream'.

It made for an awesome PC game in it's day as well. Incorporated the "To win a war, you must lose a battle and vice versa" concept quite nicely. I'm surprised no one names it in their top 10 horror game lists. It's an instant horror classic along with Sanitarium, Call of Cthulhu and Undying.
