    Usually educational games of course. Alberts House and there was this animal game which i cannot for the life of me remember the name of - had a few sub games. I think snakes and ladders was one of them. man id love to play them again
    Holy shit that IIe takes me right back to grade 3 and 4. We had two of them in the back of the classroom, they rarely got used as no teacher knew how to use them. If we were really, really lucky and got our work done, we used to be able to play Raft Away River on it.

    However, I remember the monitor being green, not black and white. Maybe it wasn't a IIe, but that form factor does look familiar.

    Yep you can switch it to black and white for text as it was easier to read that way.

    They only care about what the game looks like on their shelf.

    Yep.

    They used to slam me for helping out with repairing carts because apparently i was assisting boot leggers make fake carts.

    At one point, i had a mod demand that i open every one of my carts and take photos to prove theyre genuine, ive only got about 230 NEO•GEO carts...

    They also made allegations that i am Christoph Ratel, because i told someone their newly purchased KOF '94 was not a fake after they had purchased it from Tokyo Toy Factory... I mean honestly... Who the f*** is gonna bootleg KOF '94 home carts? They were dirt cheap and common as mud, and his pics proved it to be genuine.

    It didnt matter that the forum owner is also the owner of NEO Store, seller of many a bootleg home cart and a fair few MVS boots as well... Not to mension selling untested used home carts as "new" that i had to repair before i could play it... Service was great to buy, but after sales service was non exsistent, posting on the forum got me a stern warning and had my thread removed, so i posted it on every other forum i was on at the time, which finally woke him up...

    Its all crazy sh** over there mate...
