I had a TRS 80. The home phone went into the cradle to connect so you dialed in on your phone. I had Zaxxon on a cassette drive to play it also.
The only online gaming was dialing numbers you got from the nerds at Radio Shack, which were all dialogue. They would have a paragraph and then you
chose multiple choice. Lol
Once I was goofing around in one, and the person on the other end started typing away in the game eating my a$$ out. It was all brand new back then
and a little scary. I think his name was Captain Midnight..creepy
I nearly bought a 3DO , went for the Jag instead , I think I made the right choice the 3DO was real bad.
Aliens VS Predator on the Jag was supreme as was Doom and Wolfenstein so it wasn't all that bad.
You do know that video is of hunters shooting varmints, right? 50 cal doesn't do that to hoomans.
On topic: SOF was great. Best part about the second one was the hilarious butchering you could do to dead bodies. My best friend and I used to take
the knife to a body and make a tiny filet o human. Took a few minutes to chop through everything, but you were always left with a tasty looking chunk
I was totally a normal kid. I swear....

Yea but SOF2 took it to another level when you could just take certain pieces of their face bit by bit. I opened a door and was surprised by an enemy
only to blow away his jaw. It took me a week to stop playing with gibs and actually play through the story.
I think if all shooters were real life gory like SOF, there would probably be less gun violence in America. The disconnect kids have with shooters is
a lack of actual consequences from shooting people. They stay intact with minimal blood and no sound of suffering. Even just making all video games
abide by a realistic standard would force the consumer to confront the actual violence and brutality that goes behind every gun shot. idiot kids at
least would respect them more going into adulthood and maybe not develop the idea that its cool to kill.
It was the online pandemonium that did it for me, just the absurdity of throwing a knife across the map and getting a score or where the grenade
launcher was placed to cause as much carnage as possible with everyone running for it!
