Does anyone remember the alien that used to play computer games?

You could play chess, checkers, backgammon, and some other games against it. I've tried googling it and can't find anything.

I think he died, sadly.

He would have been around at the same time as Clippy, I think.

I'm pretty sure that only existed in the Light Universe.

His name was ALF.

That was Elon Musk. He went on to make Tesla motors and then started doing acid with that other alien, Grimes.

People would need way more info OP.

* Was the alien in a computer game or was the whole thing a physical toy? Like, was the alien a contraption or doll you played against or was it a graphic on a screen.

* What years was this sold and played?

* What format was it played on? Home computer, its own toy, game console?

* What did it or the graphics look like?

Asking people such a vague question won't get you much. Maybe that's what you were going for. I don't know. But your lacking in this query might be a sign of why you never get promoted at work.

It's from a computer game, R7, and the alien was basically an avatar that you'd play various card and board games against. I don't remember purchasing it, I think it came from included games on home computers. As far as graphics go, it was simply an alien playing whichever game you chose to play - chess, backgammon, checkers, etc...

The original Nintendo console that had a plastic robot?

That's not it, R9.

What did the alien look like, OP? What color was it? Body part info like skinny arms, almond eyes, square head? Was it wearing anything? What did the gaming screen look like?

Search your soul and try to help people to help you, OP.

It looked like the stereotypical alien, R11. Big head, big black eyes, skinny arms and body. The gaming screen varied depending on the game you were playing. If you were playing chess, he sat on the other side of the board, same with checkers, cards etc...

I'm sure you looked equally strange to him, OP/r12
