PC Games Important to Computer History
« on: August 06, 2020, 02:05:00 pm »
I'm making a computers Family Feud just for my class. For one of the questions I'm trying to come up with a small list of important games to computer history. (Not that it's part of my curriculum, just throwing that one in there for fun.) Help me out here.

Some of the ones I'm using so far:

-Space War!
-Zork
-Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord (Wizardry 1)
-The Oregon Trail
-Sim City
-Wolfenstein 3-D
-Everquest

Good picks? Bad picks? Maybe some other picks instead? Thanks.

Sid Meier's Civilization and The Secret of Monkey Island would be good considerations.

Abuse is pretty important because it was one of the first sidescroller shooters with WASD + mouselook

 Although I only played the demo of "Ken's Labyrinth" I heard it was one of the first games built by Ken Silverman. who later designed the build engine. In which was the map editor used in Duke Nukem 3D and other 1990's first person shooters. "Ken's Labyrinth" It was similar to Wolfenstein 3D I only had the shareware version.
