Video games on The Computer Chronicles (1984)
I wasn’t living in the San Francisco Bay area during the days of the personal computing revolution, but I definitely had heard of The Computer Chronicles, a show which aired in the bay area and covered current events in the world of computing.
Thus it was with great delight that I stumbled across this gem earlier this morning. It’s a youtube video of an episode of The Computer Chronicles featuring Steve Kitchen, Chris Crawford, Bill Budge, and Trip Hawkins. I love how the moderator goes on about the “amazing graphics”, and Chris talks about how Excalibur is so huge – 66KB! Times have definitely changed but it’s funny to see that we’re all still talking about the same things. 😉
