These games made me forget about the outside world.
It's sad for me to hear you say that. Because the "outside world" has always been amazing to me.

First computer game I ever played was "STREK"; Star Trek on an ASR33 teletype.

It was rubbish. So thinking I could do better became a driving force for me, brought me to where I am now. Even when I did not succeed I learned a lot along the way.

That "I can do better than that" motivation has increasingly been lost as time has gone by. I believe a lot of people were driven by it in the heyday of "Home Computers". It is near impossible to imagine one could or would create a better game, search engine, social media platform, or OS these days.

Though maybe not lost entirely. I think it has more morphed into "I can create something better suited to what I want". And the Pi gives more people the opportunity to do that.
