"Apple invents the personal computer. Again."

Back in the early 80s, Apple knew that graphical interfaces were the future, so they had a big project for that. The Lisa was very advanced for a personal computer at the time, with modern features like multitasking and protected memory. However, that brought its downfall: it cost a whooping $9,995 (almost $24,000 adjusted for inflation), and it was a sluggish machine because the operating system was too sophisticated for the hardware.

Since the Lisa was a flop, Apple went for their "plan B" the following year: the Macintosh, a simpler machine that they could sell for a fourth of that price.

Games[]

The Lisa was designed and sold for business use so not many games exist. Most are homebrew games made in the last few years but there were a few unofficial ports from the Macintosh including Lode Runner and Vegas slots which were probably made by rich computer enthusiasts with nothing better to do with their lives.
