For some real fun try replaying RPGs from the early 90s. Enjoy your pad of paper to write down all quest clues and where to go back to. And no Internet if you get stuck.

Back in the ancient days of the early 90s, PC Gamer UK had this feature called Keith Campbell's Adventure Helpline. They'd post a solution to some problem people had sent in, but if you just wrote them (not email, WROTE. As in, BY MAIL.) they'd send you the answer back on a post card. Free of charge. It was amazing.

I mean, it'd take four weeks before you'd get a reply, but the fact that it existed at ALL was incredible.

of course, these were also the days where I'd fax issues to developers directly, and would get 3.5" floppies sent in the mail with patches for games. I wrote back and forth with Origin for years about issues with Ultima 7 and Ultima 8.
