Default Sweatin Over the Oldies @ GamingwithChildren

April 1st, 2008, 22:01
Mike Anderson (txa1265) has an article up at GamingwithChildren called Sweatin'Over the Oldies Redux that explores the challenge of playing old games on new machines, the rewards in store for those who do, and just how to go about it:
However you got here, let’s assume that you are here in 2008, trying to run a game from 1985 - or perhaps even 1995 - and are having difficulty. The first question you may ask is probably “should I even bother”. YES! While there are many games - like the original Castle Wolfenstein for the Apple ][ + that feel merely quaint when played now, there are many that are classics, and every bit as ‘worth playing’ as when they were released. Games like the Wizardry [series], Duke Nukem 3D, Dune II, Sam & Max, and so on are excellent games that offer a gameplay experience that transcends the years.
For all the details, follow the link above.
