My point here is not total but in MANY respects, i was applying social theory and philosophical BS in typical BS academic fashion. Yes they are immersive but not sure that is due in its entirety to graffix or social aspects, a lot i believe can be a generational and cultural thing - I have played all these obsessively myself, even when alone on silent servers when it comes to WoW, an Conan. I am obsessive when it comes to my games, and 8 bit and 16 bit games have eaten just as much, if not more, of my life than more modern gen ones do currently. In fact I have been playing miggy games a lot more than anything else since xmass. what a geek with a bad hangover

My thoughts are schools, universities etc . . . I have already been approached by a couple of secondary schools in my area about doing a display of some sort as retro computers and older systems are now part of their curriculum.

Sorry - back on topic now . . .

lol, I am in need of funding to play games too. Pubs games and beer funding I will come and help set up for next event and can help in any way you want Drewp. I think what you are doing is very important - more important than the above university project if you ask me
