    Default Games from the past ends with T

    Lately, I've been retrogaming out of my face.

    I was inspired by Cannon Fodder references in another thread I was posting in to start revisiting games from my youth on the Spectrum, Amiga and Mega Drive, even some earlier PC games that I used to play.

    Here's some of the titles I've been looking at, any thoughts on these games folks? I personally think they're classics.

    Skool Daze (I and II)
    Frontier: Elite II
    Wing Commander
    Sensible Soccer
    The Secret of Monkey Island
    Gauntlet II
    Master of Orion II
    Strider
    Theme Park
    Civilization (I and II)
    Total Annihilation
    Mechcommander
    I am number 1, because Picard says so.
