  • Going through the classic Tomb Raiders for the first time. Man, these old games really don't care if you're an idiot. The puzzles are tough.
    Maybe not for you. The internet most assuredly did exist at that time, as did the popular walkthrough site GameFAQs. We also had printers back then as well.
