That spectrum thing with the rubber keys (I'm so old I forgot the model)
And the youngsters today have the fucking cheek to moan about loading times and repetition in today's games! Try playing hungry horace goes skiing!
Are you kidding me? They wouldn't have a clue how to load it up!
Kid 'how do I load a game'
Dad ' put the tape in the tape deck'
Kid 'what's a tape?'
Dad 'it's an old version of playing games now shut up and put the tape in.'
Kid 'ok now what?'
Dad 'Use the rubbery keyboard and press enter on the first option'
Kid 'what it's not touch screen?'
Dad 'no we didn't have them back then'
Kid 'no mouse?'
Dad 'no! Use the keyboard and press enter!'
Kid 'ok now what do I do?'
Dad 'type in LOAD "" '
Dad 'JUST DO IT!'
Kid ' ..... Okkkkkk done. Sigh.. Now what?'
Dad 'press play on the tape deck'
Kid 'no remote?'
Kid 'ok done. And.... Where's the game?'
Dad 'now we either sit here and find out if you're epileptic by watching the game load or we come back in 20 mins and hope it hasn't crashed'
Kid 'dad... You're ancient. I think I'll go play on my ipad'
