How about a net.games.video.questron? There are plenty more interesting
games to talk about in this newsgroup...like Pac-Man, fer instance.
I just finished Pac-Man yesterday after many months.  It is the greatest
maze adventure in the universe (of Timex Z81).  It looks a lot like 
Jawbreaker but has *much* better screens and has an endgame which is well
worth the time to play it.  I hate games that require ages to play and
then say "CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE VANQUISHED THE EVIL ZULAK AND HAVE SAVED
THE UNIVERSE! WATCH FOR BOGUSADVENTURE 2 FROM TOTALLYAMAZING SOFTWARE"
when you're done.  Pac-Man gives you a lot of variety in styles of play
(you can move up, down, right or left!  Plus you can die at ANY time!)
And an entertaining display at the beginning, before you even start to play
in which you get a precision drill display from the evil ghosts and then
it prints the instructions ("INSERT 25 CENTS FOR 1 CREDIT") then you go meet 
the manager who tells you "5 TOKENS FOR A DOLLAR..." (well, at least the 
game next to it had class.)



   OK, OK!  So it's sort of a joke.  I just think its a little silly that any
time more than two articles on the same subject are posted someone always
starts in with that a seperate newsgroup should be created.  There must be
an awful lot of keyboards out there without a 'N' key!     o   o
                                                             |
                                                            \_/
