One of the few things I loved about early C&VG (besides the Bug Hunters) was Keith Campbell's adventure columns.

Strange really because text adventures aren't my thing at all.

Does anyone know what he does now? Does he still write, or is he in an old peoples home replaying the Zork games?

C&VG in the early days had a massive adventure sectionh didn't it? I remember having the issue with Sherlock Holmns on the cover, around 1982 or 1984?

I only started reading it in Mar 1985, but yep, the adventure section was about 10 pages. About once a year it would swell to about 20-30 pages.

It encouraged me to try out these games, however in the long run I preferred point and click adventure games and RPGs. (I still remember the panning Ultima 4 took in C&VG :shock: )

I reckon he must be in his sixties now, as he looked pretty middle aged then! :lol:

Older than that, I'm pretty sure he was in his late 40's early 50's back then.
