I don't know why someone didn't go and make a decent video card games
for PCs.  You know, sometime like maybe 1988 or later, make a video card
with a meg or so of ram, and a chip on it to do sprites.  Hmm.  That
might be an amusing project to do on an FPGA.  Except, if doing it
today, why not go for 32bit?
