Yes I had a similar thought. I've played a huge variety of games for over 40 years and not many have doors. D&D is the first that comes to mind of course. But when reading it I was wondering what a "door" symbolizes in a military historical wargame (my preferred genre). Answer: Absolutely nothing.

Whaddya mean it's not the 80's anymore?
Who cares whether "soccer" is popular or not in the USA. Footie doesn't need the mere 300 million americans. The other 6.7 billion of us like it just fine thanks.
Now that it has legs...
As is the price difference! I paid $3000 each for my 1991 PC system with all peripherals & my 1997 PC system. They both still work aside from some of the peripherals which failed eventually ('97 monitor, HD & CDROM) ('91 5.25" floppy). As you can see the older the lower the failure rate. Add to that a LONG list of old stuff: 1980 Sony record player, 1980 Toshiba TV, 1980 Clock radio (and it has the only cassette player that still works!), 90's VCR & TV.
Beat me to it! I just played a bunch of games loaded off my XF 551 floppy drive (sat for about 10 years in the basement until I powered it up today - you'd never guess it was 25+ years old).
