I like this game! Great action, very intense! It's relatively new to me so I'm still learning to navigate the Enterprise! ;-)

@RetroRob:

It was killer in the arcade with the rotary dial, rather than a joystick.

Yeah, I can imagine that a rotary knob would work better! I can't believe I have missed out on this game before!

When we keep playing those games we love, we get real good at them.

But then sometimes it's the other way around: as a kid I was very good at Spiderman on Atari 2600. Now when I play it it feels I lost the knack of it!

@RetroRob: I have no idea how to cry as a baby. I used to be great at it. But I can learn to make insensible sqeals and I can try to remember the states of unfairness that continued to upset me as I developed cognition, and though they won't be the same cries they can sound the same and have the same childish sense of unfairness as reason behind the cries. Brainwave patterns strongly mimic vocal patterns related to the same brain, so I could teach mysrlf to cry as a baby would, though I don't really remember the how and why. Don't try to remember how you played as a kid but how you remember it felt to play as a kud. Play as you are now, but play for that feeling of nostalgic recall; let the kid in you play with the grownup you, don't try to become the kid. Try to have fun like the kid. There is no spoon.

Wow, you're a real philosopher! And you describe the sense of nostalgia really well! I probably gotta read this a couple of times to fully understand it though! XD ... And don't worry, I really enjoy my trips down memory lane but also the present time and life ('das Hier und Jetzt' if you allow a philosophical German term)!
