Lost Online Games From the Pre-Web Era 186

harrymcc writes "Long before the Web came along, people were playing online games — on BBSes, on services such as Prodigy and CompuServe, and elsewhere. Gaming historian Benj Edwards has rounded up a dozen RPGs, MUDs, and other fascinating curiosities from the 1970s, 1980s, and early 1990s — and the cool part is: they're all playable on the Web today." What old games were good enough for you to watch them scroll by on your 300 baud modem?

Anything by Mimms gets my vote. I still have some of his books I bought back in the '70s. On my bookshelf right now sits "Electronic Music Projects Vol 1" by Mimms. Craig Anderton's stuff is good too - "Electronic Projects for Musicians". Another favorite of mine is Don Lancaster, but you may want to wait until you have the basics down first. Above all - have fun with it!

The moon is a planet just like the Earth, only it is even deader.
