  1. Wow! The guy at the end pretty much predicts where games would eventually go in terms of “novelization” and stories.

    The host looks like Kevin Spacey!

  2. Thanks for posting the clip. I used to watch “Computer Chronicles” all the time. A real old school computer TV show. (I also happen to live in San Mateo, where the show was produced.)
