Computer Game Reviews

Just video games? Nope. Along with having grown up with the NES and Super Nintendo, the IBM 5153 computer was the very first computer I played DOS games on when I was a kid. Growing up with 5.25" to 3" floppy disks then over to CD-based games, I thought it was about time these classics get some spotlight. Some games have been preserved and are still in working conditions, while some are impossible to find and have to resort to emulation. Regardless, for those of us who made friends with good ol' command-line computers with 90-pound CRT monitors, may these reviews bring you back a time when things were easy, let alone likely guide you in carefully choosing which ones to keep and add to your personal computer game collection. Enjoy!
