I totally agree. Rogue isn't an all time favorite by government decree.
Also, there are games on the Apple ][ that are way more fun and
interesting than any PC schlock these days. Heck, I still have my Atari
2600 sitting by my TV that I fire up fairly often. A game that fits
inside a 2K eprom holds my interest longer than some PC games.
