modern computers:
๐Ÿ˜’ take a while to boot with a boring animation
๐Ÿ˜’ can count past 256
๐Ÿ˜’ too many games, choice paralysis
๐Ÿ˜’ quiet when operating

namco dig dug arcade machine from 1982:
โœ… boots in seconds and flashes random tiles and cool shit like ROM OK all over the screen while doing so
โœ… the 255th level is broken, rendering the game unplayable from then on
โœ… dig dug
โœ… plays an eight second music loop whenever you move

@lynnesbian my PC boots in less than 5 seconds but looks nothing as cool as a test grid, a jamble of tiles and "ROM OK" and that's the real crime.


you omit the minor point that the Namco Dig Dug machine does NOTHING else.
