1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die

The Oregon Trail appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by Octopus Books (ISBN 978-184403-681-3).

The book's summary (p.22): The Oregon Trail has seen countless ports and remakes since its 1971 debut, but the canonical version is probably the 1985 version for Apple II computers. It's this edition, with color graphics that were remarkably detailed for the time, that most players remember as their first encounter with that strange beast known as "edutainment".

Young Sheldon

The game can be seen in two episodes of the Big Bang Theory prequel TV series Young Sheldon, being played and discussed by both Sheldon and his twin sister Missy.
