What is one aspect of older games that you are glad to see gone nowadays? And what's one you'd like to see return?

Glad to see gone: game overs meaning it; very few modern games outside of a few niche categories (roguelikes wouldn't be the same without permadeath) will drop you on the title screen to start from the first level; even relatively short games are expected to have a save function. That's great, IMO; restarting just wastes time.

Would like to see return: "Pick up and play" factor has gotten less and less over time; I guess this is the tradeoff of every game having a save function, every game needs a save function. Cutscenes, long tutorials, games that require elaborate progression to get your character up to a point; none of these things are bad, but the "arcade-style" game could use more love.

My Amiga 1000 has an ACA500plus, provides a faster (though still 68000) CPU, some 68010 functionality, built-in kickstart switcher, two compact flash drives, and the ability to use Amiga 1200 CPU accelerators (though I haven't taken advantage of that yet). It's very nice, so I'll go with that.

I mean it's interesting; how would we tell? Like, what artifacts of civilization can survive 65 million years (at the earliest) and you know, an asteroid hitting them?

My guess would be that they didn't (brain sizes are probably too small?) but it's hard to know for sure.

It's funny, sometimes I think about upgrading to an OLED 4K, sometimes I think about downgrading to a big CRT. Both have better blacks than my LCD, I suppose... No content I watch on TV is in 4k; hell, for the most part the only 1080 content is the Switch, broadcast TV, and the Wii U. (broadcast TV is 1080i, and the Wii U and Switch are both often 720p, so even my TV's 1080p doesn't get much of a workout)

I'd say it's worth it for computer monitors, though-- if I didn't have the ultrawide monitor I'd probably have a 4k one instead.

If it comes up the same way after three rolls, you're rolling it wrong o.o

Honestly I'd be more likely to suspect a hardware fault on a modern PC; the Apple ][ and C64 would probably be generating random numbers using addition and bitshifts, and if those don't work they wouldn't even boot. Modern CPUs now occasionally have built-in random number generators, and those have been known to have issues in the past.

So perhaps I've just activated "NSA mode" :P

A flight simulator being hidden in Microsoft Excel.

Sadly killed because Microsoft decided to blame easter eggs for why their products were so easily hacked in the late 90's :(

Nope.

Worst battery leak was all over the back of my Sega CDX; thankfully, everything cleaned up alright and it works fine, though I haven't tried using it as a Discman since.

Aspect Legend: Aspect Star 3; it plays off of the game's major sound motif and-- okay fine complimenting my own stuff is obnoxious, fine, fine

The game over theme from Super Mario World. It's so melodramatic with the soft Rhodes piano and I love it for that. Koji Kondo was definitely having fun getting to know the SPC700.
