I added the NPOV check because I felt the article was clearly opinionated and, quite franky, someone *mean* toward ZZT-OOP. Sure, as a level editor for ZZT, it's not quite as advanced or versatile as Visual BASIC or c++, but passages like "[it] can provide one with many hours of fun, but very little else" strike me as unnecessarily disparaging.

ZZT-oop was not "the first in-game scripting language" by any means. ZZT was released in 1991; I was using a language of similar design (if lesser sophistication) fully three years earlier in Repton Infinity on the 8-bit BBC Micro, and I'd be surprised if there weren't others before that.

Reference to ZZ Top[edit]

Someone might want to research if there is any reference in the name ZZT-oop to ZZ Top. I see a high possibility there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Whitehorses2501 (talkcontribs) 00:35, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
