Let’s Talk About… games for the Macintosh computer
Yeah, I had to do a double-take with that one. Like, Macintosh Macintosh?
Did this thing even have games? The only thing I remember playing on this computer (I think this was the one we had) was this weird game where you could put in your height and weight and then the computer would spit out what you’d weigh and how tall you would be on the different planets in the solar system.
Thrillsville, I know.
Later, in school, we had games like Lemonade Stand and, of course, Oregon Trail, teaching a generation of children to mispronounce the word “Oregon” as “ORA-gone.”
Or then there was this beautiful thing. Another addition to the computer family at my house, compliments of my dad:
And then we’re off to the races. Carmen Sandiago, Bill Nye the Science Guy, Sim City… this thing had the games on it haha. Of course, you can tell from the titles that I was as much of a nerd then as I am now. But little nerdlette me loved the colorful stories that sprang to life on the screen (as well as Claris Works, the word processor, and Encore, which was a music music scoring software. Yup. Nerd.).
It was the last Macintosh we had before we switched over to IBM (which also turned into a fun means of entertainment for me), but… good times, man. Good times.
What’s your favorite Macintosh gaming memory (if you have one)? Does anyone here game on an Apple computer? Let me know in the comments!
