Old Skool Games

Written by Phil on . Posted in Articles


I missed out on a large gap of hardcore simulations. Years of classics passed me by because I was in the Army. A few years ago I purchased a few of these games from eBay. I was really pleased they came with the big manuals and inside the big box. Back then they really cared about making these games and after a playing a few I would argue they are better than a lot of stuff that is produced now. Once you get o re the shock of how bad the graphics are compared to today’s standards you relive that back then you had to use some of your imagination to fill in the gaps.

The games I have managed to get running on my Windows 7 64bit PC are:

B-17 Flying Fortress The Mighty Eighth.
Janes F-15
M1A1 Tank Platoon 2.

I’ve been having a blast playing these. More to follow.
