good to see you also have the original Red Baron manual Vander :)

They don't write them that way anymore...

Sorry late to the party... BTW, fun thread

I never owned my own Intellivision console, but got to spend a lot of time with friends in prolonged gaming sessions.
Got to love the early sound and voices!

Also played original RB in 2D for a little on a friend's early Apple (or was it a Mac?), but at that point was deep in grad school so never got in on the 'golden age' of gaming like RB3D.

Mein Gott, I forgot it was vintage 1981, some of you weren't born yet...

The Intellivision was my first console, I would have loved to have that game, I didn't even know it existed!! :shock:

I burned a lot of hours on Wolfenstein. That and the original Wizardry.

I think I still have my Apple IIC stuffed in the attic. Kind of makes me want to perform a digital archeological expedition. :lol:

A buddy of mine had the Formula One game. I seem to remember that thing burned through the batteries.

Funny you mention that, Spud, I had thought of posting about Wizardry too when I made that Wolfenstein post. Wizardry was my other favorite game in those days (I don't recall either of them being R-rated, Bandy!) I played all through it, mapping my progress with graph paper. (Which I did with Ultima IV a few years later too.)

Now, ~35 years later, I'm even more of a map nerd! Those were hours well spent.

Forgot about this one. I guess this was my first 1vs1 dogfight experience.
