gaming in 2016 is completely unrecognisable, baring almost no resemblance
whatsoever to the days of Planescape: Torment, Baldur’s Gate and Dungeon Keeper,
a magical time which spawned some of the greatest PC games ever released.
Today, PC gaming is identical to console gaming – only more technically
advanced – the games demonstrating few distinctions.
comparison, PC gaming in the 1990s was a separate beat entirely, a genuine
alternative to console gaming, offering players a completely dissimilar
experience. Instead of settling for mediocre controls and outdated graphics, PC
gaming was pushing the threshold of what was possible, innovating in terms of
storytelling and technology.
Honestly, it was a magical time, in which the
world was introduced to the likes of Guybrush Threepwood, Manny Calavera, DOOM
Guy, and the twenty-seven-year-old theoretical physicist, Gordon Freeman.
said, PC gaming wasn’t perfect – and unfortunately – not everything can mature
with the same degree of grace. In reality, there are countless PC classics from
the period which are now virtually unplayable – or completely unplayable –
having deteriorated considerable over the years, despite being remembered with
a great amount of fondness
here are 10 PC games that achieved the complete opposite, only improving with
age, growing in appreciation in the two decades since their release.
