Re: Paragraphs?

I prefer paragraph breaks also. Of course, I also like 2 spaces after periods.

Re: Starfield for the PS5?

Yet I don't yearn for more from my car, refrigerator or really even my tv. Any improvement is either marginal or a bell and whistle thing.

Re: So when did home video games become "Arcade Perfect?"

I asked around elsewhere on this topic, and this is sort of what I got: * "Arcade Perfect" is generally accepted as 'running like the actual arcade board' and does not generally include a discussion of whether or not the controllers are similar at all. * The term 'arcade perfect' is widely...

Video Game conversations

Ever had a humorous exchange with someone during or about a video game?

A conversation with a kid:
What are you playing?
Buck Rogers
Who?
Buck Rogers. Buck Rogers in the 25th Century
Isn't it like the 21st Century?
No, he's in the future
Then why is he in an old video game?
*Game Over*

Re: New ZX Spectrum to be released April

The Vega Plus is in the news - and in a Coleco Chameleon kind of way. The portable ZX Speccy raised almost $700,000 in 2016, and was supposed to have released in 2016.

Re: So when did home video games become "Arcade Perfect?"

Thank you for the nice conversation You have gone from categorically obsolete down to typical arcade games were buttons and a joystick. I agree kids went to arcades for the reason you mention, as well as socializing. There were arcades before video games too, and the same reasons held there. However...

Re: So when did home video games become "Arcade Perfect?"

I am neither contesting that home consoles and giant flat screen tvs are not wonderful machines, nor that arcades should pop up in every neighborhood. However, in their niche - often in tourist areas and side by side with redemption games and midway games or as arcade bars - they do just fine. Playi...
