        Yeah, the winters in Michigan were brutal. This was way before any indoor skateparks were opened in the area where I grew up. Computer games filled that void. Fuck the snow.

    I love the segment at the end. A single cd-rom encyclopedia (60MB!) for a mere $300. Takes me back to telnet days.

  4. Man, I was just playing the sequel to this on my NES a few days ago – Love that EA were the developers.
