It's cool to see you expanding GR View through your write-ups on on the Retro Monday games, Pedz. I think the bite-size approach works well. There are one or two wee typos but I enjoy checking out your views. I agree that Block Ball is a neat twist on the Breakout theme and I think it was the last title that I picked up for the original Game Boy.

Nice work :) .



Yeah, I've noticed them and plan on editing them out.

Thanks Jawa.

All excellent choices. Wolfenstein really shows its age but is still good fun. Duke Nukem is fantastic, but I've seen a million people play it.

But I'm gonna go with Dark Forces, on the condition that you use the XL Engine mod that makes it far easier to run and enables a load of modern features. But most importantly it adds mouse look which makes the game infinitely more fun to play.

A phenomenal FPS and one that doesn't get the recognition it deserves.

I won't be using mods, I'll be playing it in it's 'original' form.

Jedi Knight is the one I'm the least familiar with so I'm curious to see it

Just noticed that. It's not Jedi Knight, it's just Star Wars: Dark Forces. Then came Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Dark Forces II. Then it went to Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast before ending with Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.

Dark Forces was a pure FPS with puzzle elements and no Jedi or Force powers. It was one of the first FPS I'm aware of that had simple objectives beyond just getting to the exit. It was the first thing in Star Wars to show how the Death Star plans were actually stolen (Don't believe the Rogue One propaganda!).

It's an awesome game and with the XL Engine it runs great on modern systems. Now if only they'd finish it so you can actually complete the game (There are some bugs in later levels about 2/3rds of the way through that make it impossible to finish at the moment) it'd be perfect. They're also porting Outlaws to it, which will be awesome if they get it working.

It's a mod in the same way the various source ports of Doom are mods. It just makes it easier to run on modern systems. Though if you really want to dick about with DOSbox and use keys to aim up and down that's your choice. I'm just saying it's far more playable and enjoyable with it.

Really hope DK3D doesn't win. I've seen that game so many times that it's boring. Dark Forces to WIN!

I think the Twitter vote is set to expire at 7pm today rather than tomorrow... there are some bad votes out there. Terrible!

I don't really have a preference for a winner as I've not seen much of any of them. I guess I'd rather see Dark Forces or Duke.
