    In the March through August/September and then November 1987 issues of Computer Gaming World, there was a five-part series of profiles on the biggest computer gaming companies of the time. Fun reads, I thought. Some of you will no doubt find EA's profile ironic.

    Part 1: Epyx
    Part 2: Electronic Arts
    Part 3: Activision
    Part 4: Infocom
    Part 5: MicroProse

    Forget EA. I'm more interested in the Infocom one. I always enjoy reading about Infocom and, more specifically, Zork. Thanks for posting.
