The game was so good that it rose above that negative.

    Wings of Fury was great and a classic, but I'd definitely give Rescue Raiders the nod over it. With that said, the Apple II version had wonderful touches that weren't necessarily found in the other ports. Games like Hardball!, Pirates, and Mario Bros. were found on and better on other platforms.
    Autoduel was a lot of trial and error, but all I needed was a text version of the map to get going.

    Rescue Raiders was way too hard, just about impossible without the "ZIPPY" cheat! I vividly remember getting mad and chucking that disk across my room and it stuck in my ceiling light fixture. I let it sit there for about a week and the floppy became horribly warped from the heat, but it still worked after that!

    And I can't believe Oregon Trail is winning our poll here
    Choplifter is a great game too... Did you ever get a perfect score and see the triple crown? I was only able to do it once as a teen but haven't been able to do it again...

    Here's a great post over at Atari Age that has computer game rankings throughout the 80s from Computer Gaming World. It's really freaking cool. You can see early on the Apple ][ and Atari computers dominate, with the c64 slowly creeping in, the TRS-80 dying off, and the PC and Amiga coming into play later on. The link to the source is down, but the thread itself is great.

    Hacker 2. So bloody cool, so well thought out, so perfectly executed. Better than that lame-arse flight sim. Get off the crack.

    Toying with the idea of getting myself an Apple II after listening to this, any ideas on how much they normally go for, and if they're pretty common. Only seems to be one on Ebay at the moment for around 150 and none on Game Gavel.

    Cheers :-)

    Pricing for an Apple IIe or IIc is across the board. I picked up a complete, boxed Apple IIc for $100. But I've seen them go anywhere from free to around $200 US$. And everywhere in between. I think they are well worth it if you can find one.
