No Matter Where You Go, There You Are

Everything Old Is New Again

It’s kind of funny but video games haven’t gotten any better over the last decade. The production values have gotten better (sound, graphics …) but gameplay remains about the same. In fact, it’s almost a cliche that older games had better gameplay while all the modern games are rehashes of a genre (how is doom 3/halo different from castle wolfenstein?)

Anyway I discovered that two “classics” from when I was growing up are now available.
One is the open sourced version of Star Control 2 called the Ur-Quan Masters and the
other is Pirates. Made me think about other classic video games I’ve played:
wing commander
championship manager

They don’t make games like they used to…
