- OK: if we are going for the history of great ancient computer games:
PDP-8 had the first space invaders style game I have seen. When I was producing induced motion videos for testing on a PDP-8 using an oscilliscope as an out put screen (and a pair of DtoAs to produce 'video') we had a set of four or five 'action' games written on this same hardware.
This was back in '76, when all the rest of the university was operating on punch cards!
2nd greatest game I played was RATS. Is there anyone here who played the game RATS which ran on the CTOS/BTOS operating system back in early 80s (prior to the PC taking over the 80x86 space).
