Lens-Artists Challenge #75 – Nostalgic

There was a time when video games came in boxes with manuals and often other goodies. Sierra’s adventure games were notorious for sudden deaths and dead ends. The rival Lucasfilm Games even added a joke about them in one of their games.

    LOL funny to think about something so 20th century being nostalgic but of course it is! Loved your creative response

    1. Thanks! The graphic adventure genre basically died after the mid-nineties. However, there has been an increase in the number of new titles in recent years. Probably the people who played the games as kids wanted to make something similar when they grew up.

    Ha! Nice. Yeah, I miss the manuals. I don’t game much anymore. Still too addictive. No discipline.

    1. Yep, I like the physical artefacts which come with the games. I mostly buy downloads nowadays, but occasionally I’ll get a special edition if it has good stuff.
