I'm so from another generation.

I remember feeding quarters into video machines, though I don't recall the term "game" having been referenced.


Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.

I remember calling them "Arcade Machines"... Video "game" wasn't part of my vocabulary for some time.

I programmed on a Commodore PET in High School.

Bryan, my first game I programmed was similar to Defender.

Mig Alley Ace. After reading for months about what an incredible simulation it was, I purchased it, loaded it up.... and have never been so saddened in my life. That's an airplane?

After looking at screen shots of Defender, it does not look like the same game. Now, I'm not sure what the one I played is called, but Defender is the only thing that I can remember.
