    ZZT, the 1991 adventure game for MS-DOS. I used it to make my first interactive virtual world when I was 5 or 6 years old. The graphics were entirely ASCII art, and ZZT-OOP was an ingeniously simple scripting language for basic video game mechanics that helped unlock a ton of creativity. Thanks, Tim Sweeney.
