You Have Died! Press any key... A SSI / D&D Screenshot Slideshow

Here's a brief slideshow I made of random screenshots from old Strategic Simulations Inc. (SSI) software from about '91-'93 - official Dungeons and Dragons computer games. Although I have these (they don't all work in a virtual machine as far as I can tell), I never played them at the time they were out on store shelves. As far as the genre on computers goes, I went from Adventure and Zork to Temple of Apshai and then nothing until Baldur's Gate came out about 15 years later. Oh wait, I think I've played a game or two of Diablo. Oh yeah, and more recently, Avernum. Ok, at least I've never played WoW!
