It was great seeing a DOS game featured so prominently in the mag last issue, but I find it amazing you say that PC(*) games are given more coverage than they deserve.Jagfest_UK wrote:The PC gets a lot more coverage than some other machines that were certainly more succesful, over here anyway, as games machines. The recent X-wing article proves that, I don't think it needs more at all.
This is true. A lot of my favourite PC games came from other platforms - Xenon, Xenon 2, Gauntlet 2, Karnov, Speedball 2, Gods, Wizball, Stargoose. I'd like to see more computer games in general from that period - Amiga, Atari ST and PC.kelp7 wrote:I have to admit a lot of the games I played (like Saboteur, Impossible Mission, Wizball, Arkanoid) were all just games you could get on other platforms.
Yeah, I remember that period, it was a really exciting time for PC gaming. I remember an article in PC Zone (I think?) from around the time of the Playstation launch saying how consoles had finally overtaken PCs as the pinnacle of computer graphics. PCs were still stuck with software 3D engines, which didn't look brilliant. Then 3DFX came along and launched the whole 3D accelerator market and consoles never caught up againMattyC64c wrote:Perhaps an interesting article could be the rise of dedicated 3D graphics cards and 3D graphics processing in general. I would love to read that.
Also, I would love to see some making ofs of those really bad FMV games.
