Wordle, 1985 Edition

The game Wordle has taken the internet by storm, because everyone loves to show off their vocabulary and/or deductive reasoning skills. It's not too far-fetched to imagine the game Wordle as a computer game from the 1980s. Back then we were astonished at the technology that brought us computer games. Thirty-seven years later, that amazing technology seems laughably quaint, not to mention difficult and cumbersome. While you might delight in the nostalgia that those tones bring, we would never want to go back to the days of dial-up internet and dot matrix printers. The bonus in this video is the demonstration of play from an announcer who just isn't good at the game at all. (via Boing Boing)
