ZZT is an insult to the GCS genre. To sum it all up:

Oh, yes. I remember how much you hated ZZT. Well, I think it is easier to use than MZX.

ZZT was first. How could the first one be an insult if it started the genre?

I thought that Pong was first.....Oh, and that's like saying that Wolf 3D sucks because it was the first FPS (I think).

GOATIE'S WRONG! Spacewar was first, and was much more complex than Pong. Also, Catacomb Abyss was the first FPS game.

ZZT is FAAR from being easy.
A:It never warns that you have an error;Instead, it blasts out a PC speaker beep in the game

B:It doesent support Soundblaster

C:It doesent allow character editing

D:You can screw up your title board VEEEEERRY easily

E:How? Make a robot (In this stupid language, an Object) that turns everything thats on the board to something else

If you do that, it keeps it that way. (It saves it to the world file)

Sure, sure. ZZT was made first. But that doesent make it any better than MZX.

........


Poor corrupted idiots... Meh
