Trip Down Memory Lane

In the late 80s and early 90s, The Oregon Trail was a popular computer game in elementary schools. (Click here to play The Oregon Trail for yourself.) Computers weren't all that common back then and computer games were even more rare. As a result, for many this game was their first experience playing a computer game or even using a computer at all. Crazy how much things have changed in 20 years!

Can you remember the first time you used a computer? What was the first game you played on a computer? Can you find the game online in the same version you remember?

I remember this game! There's about a million different versions of it now, with better graphics, added features, etc. I used to love this game. It's a great way for kids to learn about pioneer life.

I died a lot too. My party members died a lot as well. I'm trying to remember if I ever had all of my party survive....
