Lessons from video games

This week isn’t just the 40th anniversary of the first moon landings, it’s also the 40th anniversary of the video game Lunar Lander.

Having a go at this excellent remake (for Windows), I learnt an important lesson that one can use in real life:

Don’t go for the bigger fuel tank. Upgrading to the more efficient engine is a better buy.

Oh well, the game was fun.
