Why, I ask you, can I not play Legend of Kyrandia and Day of the Tentacle on my Windows 7-style computer? I may know absolutely nothing about how computer programming works but the least those lazy game makers could have included how to play it on a system from fifteen years in the future in the instructions, you know?
(Update: A thank you to the people who wrote me about ScummVM! It works like magic! Once again, I’ve managed to solve a problem by bitching about it into the howling Intervoid. Hooray!)
