1) Simulation game — you’re still the owner of a fake team made up of real players, but instead of gaining or losing points based on those players’ actual future performances, a computer generates its own outcomes based on the relative strengths and weaknesses of those players’ preexisting stats. It’s less about creating a dynamic competition grounded in real-life outcomes and more a hypothetical scenario run through a computer’s mainframe, which essentially makes it a digital version of Strat-O-Matic.

2) Released - 6 January 1961.

3) A text game or text-based game is a video game that uses text characters instead of bitmap or vector graphics. Text-based games were a popular form of interactive fiction in the 1970-80s.
