My game addiction began when the local Pizza Hut on Mercer Island got a Space Invaders in 1978. Way too much of my newspaper route money went to feed that beast, one quarter at a time. The video arcade mania of the early 80's was something to behold. Talk about a kid in a candy shop. Thanks to the home computer, I never quite had to get over being a pixel junkie. I refuse to define whether that is good or bad. It just is.

Well, the problem is that Space Invaders, though arguably graphically and technically superior, does not equal Kill Bad Aliens. We want the latter! :P
As far as my programming goes, though, it is rather sloppy, and I don't use hardly any comments. Sometimes a bug takes a while to find, and it invariably turns out to be some stupid obvious error I overlooked about a hundred times. I should definately listen to Jeff sooner rather than later.
I just finished making an ASCII connect four game (which I am very proud of), but I'm now migrating to the wonderful world of DirectX and graphics. Wish me luck.
