    One of the first PC games I've ever played, and to this day still a good memory, as well as an excellent reference joke.

    Hell yes! I love the game, every version of it. I remember playing the really old school version with big pixels on Apple computers (not Macintosh...Apple) in elementary school.

    When I got my very first computer, I was able to get one game and I picked Oregon Trail. I remember rabbits were so damn hard to kill cause they'd run across the screen really quick. Normally, I'd just shoot a slow moving buffalo and that would've fed my family for weeks, but cause that bunny was moving so fast I always had to shoot it, it was taunting me. :mad:

    That was just a typo. I was talking to Jeannette about what movie we should watch, and typed Movie. Freudian Slip, as it were.

    I never cared too much to pay attention to how deep the rivers were, so I had many, many, many children drown on me.:( :down
