One of the greatest features of PC gaming also happens to be one of its greatest guilt traps: cheap games available quickly. I own the first two Dead Space games and have put 45 minutes into them, total. I’ve bought others and still not put any time into them. I own so many games and don’t play them! Well now you have an opportunity to own even more games from the golden era of PC gaming with choose-your-price/Humble Bundle-style scheming. Should you be paying attention? You sure should, here’s why.
They’re Interplay Games. From 1995 to 2000 (well before then too, but just for emphasis), Interplay was on a tear making some of the most classic games uttered by PC enthusiasts to this day. Some famous ones are its RPGs: Fallout and Fallout 2 (strangely, Planescape: Torment is nowhere to be fuond), but you’ll also get the Descent games, the spin-off Freespace games, Earthworm Jim and MDK. Pay <$8 and you get your pick of eight titles, pay $34.99 and just get them all, but I’d say, eh, there are enough you can skip out on to avoid this option.
It’s GOG. I love me some Steam, but for classic games, you just can’t, can-effing-not, beat GOG’s DOSBox emulation. It feels like you’re playing them just as good, or better, than in their original release. They’re also DRM-free so you can put them anywhere and skip out on the constant connection to the internet. It’ll just work. I thought GOG was some cheesy illegal Russian vendor at first, but they are in fact A-Number One!
