Nostaligalanda ....

Three recent articles on Gamasutra threw me deeply into the Nostaliga Land.

The first is an article about the history of gaming platforms and the Apple II computer, this was our first PC in 86, my brothers actually.

The next is an interview with Richard Garriott, the original developer of the Ultima RPG series. We used to play Ultima on the Apple PC with 64 K RAM and 51/4" floppy drives.

The third is the history of Dragon Quest. This was the game on Nintendo Family Computer at around the same time, I followed the Dragon Quest series up to DQ 3, every new release took my breath away for some time and the art work is all done by Akira Toriyama, the artist of Dragon Ball series.

Thanks gama ....
