Text-based games were all you really needed.
All these youths and their confounded graphics. Who needs 'em? Smile | :)
Fond memories...and you can still play the original at (requires browser & adobe flash):
BBC Radio 4 Extra - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Game - 30th Anniversary Edition[^]

Edit

See if you can too.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
