It works in a terminal, yeah, but it's had an operable GUI (a few,  
really) for a very long time. It has icons, buttons, menus, and all  
that jazz.

Here are some screenshots of ECB (Emacs Code Browser), for example:  

People write games in emacs (e.g. http://ulf.epplejasper.de/ 
EmacsBubblesScreenshots.html ).

There used to be a full graphical web browser in emacs (images and  
everything), though it looks like it may have fallen by the wayside.

And tetris comes installed.

I'm an OSX user, so i use Aquamacs, but i have to assume that these  
aged innovations have made it to the Windows platform as well.

I mean, yeah, it edits text, but it's not just a text-mode editor.
