    • Charlie: In 1983, if you wanted to play a videogame, you had to wait five minutes while your Sinclair ZX Spectrum loaded it from a tape. The game would consist of you guiding a crudely-animated car mechanic across three screens of irritating peril, collecting magenta spanners and listening to beepy sound effects. You'd die every four seconds, couldn't save your position, and when you got to the end your reward was a stark caption reading "Well Done", followed by the game starting all over again, except slightly faster.
