Remember the good-old days of Commodore, 386s and 486s, and the world without Net? No 10Mbs bandwidth to play Q3A, no RTSes, none of the currently so popular multiplayer games... But it's so much more fun to play with somebody else instead of playing alone. And there came those split-screen games. The screen is divided in two parts, one is for you and one is for your friend sharing the keyboard, or one playing using the keys and the other using the mouse or joystick or some other misc. input device... it really had a feeling to be able to push, kick, or yell at your oppoment instead of just msging him a "Grrrr". And the fight for the better keyboard position, mixing up the part of the screen beloning to you... something those glittering games really miss nowadays.
