So. Many. Innocent. Skiers. This really fucking upsets me. HTgdF did I get to this age and not know this?
The first game I can remember playing on PC was Snakes that came in QBASIC, also with a game about a gorilla tossing a banana. Had Zork on a VIC-20, erm it probably would have been a C-64 by then. I still haven't fucking finished it.
NIBBLES.BAS and GORILLAS.BAS. Ah, the memories.
Good times, good times.
Those games and SkiFree just heightens my desire to make an arcade machine with all the best games from the 90's.
And yes, chalk me up as another one who never ever knew about the 'F' key. Yeti, for more than 20 years you have conquered me...it is time for vengeance!

QFT. Seriously QFT.

Yes. Seriously. I would love to help him get that lawyer by chipping in with some money.
Okay, so I happen to have a baggie full of the keys from a dismantled keyboard, and a small jewelry business. Here you are, then:
PS: Yes, I could make more, in varying styles, except I haven't got any more F keys. Remedy that problem and I'm your F pendant girl.
Jamaila, that is awesome. I would definitely buy that from you, if you were to begin producing them. I really hope someone in here have a lot of F keys lying around.

They put huge gorillas on top of skyscrapers and had them throw giant spinning spinning explosive bananas at each other. It was not only pure genius, but it is clearly an idea that now needs to be replicated in reality. I am going to immediately start writing letters to Japanese game shows with the suggestion.
I did always wonder though, when I dug a path completely through a building, why didn't the parts of the building above that collapse?
