The magic is back

Of course, computer games and the machines they run on have changed enormously since Zork first appeared in 1980. But I can’t say that the games are any more entertaining.

Playing Zork and some of the other games of the day that were called “interactive fiction” was like reading a “Lord of the Rings” book for the first time. You could be transported to a strange and mystical world and caught up in a powerful and addictive story. —Ric ManningThe magic is back  (Courier Journal)
