Games

I have been interested in computer games ever since getting my first micro-computer, a Comodore PET, back in the late 70's. The first game I played on the PET was Rogue, a game which I still play to day, all though these days it is on the PC. I then discovered the original Adventure game on an IBM mainframe and was hooked. When I purchased a BBC micro I played a number of games, but the ones I preferred were the ones where you had to think, such as Adventure games, rather than react as in platform games.

My current games machine is a PC running Windows XP and while I still enjoy adventure games I do play others these days. I still prefer games where I have to think rather than react. The problem is my son designs and build levels for various 1st person shooters such as Duke Nukem. This means that I also spend a fair amount of time playing 1st person shooters.

Follow the links below for some of my thoughts on various types of games and the occasional short review.
