Computer Program and Game Ad from 1982

This ad might not seem like much. It is simple black and white, with minimum graphics, but I used to obsess over advertising like this. For me, often the more text the better, because then I could use it as a checklist or even a price guide when trying to make buying decisions.

In the lower right hand corner you will see the part that would have really captured my imagination. A list of the Scot Adams Adventures. Months of my life were spent typing my way through Adams’ Adventures and I would eventually own all nine to these classics.
