Tech Tip Tuesday #6


Today I thought I would bring to you a list that details some of my all time favorite video games from growing up. Almost all are still purchasable and playable today. Some are even free. You can’t go wrong with any of these so give them a try, hopefully you’ll get as much out of this list as I did.

Morrowind – An awesome role-playing game (RPG). I still play this game today. It’s not free but it’s one of the few games that can be played on Windows, Mac, and Linux by utilizing an open source project called OpenMW. This game has a bit of a learning curve and many people will find it frustrating early on.

Battlezone – A first person tank shooter game, in space, with some real-time strategy components. It’s free! This game is simple but yet has so much depth because it’s not just a bunch of tanks in a death-match. You have to lead your army, build your base, and manage resources.

Total Annihilation – Incredible real-time strategy. In my opinion the best. The sheer number of units, community mods, and components to this game will keep you enjoying it for a long time to come.

Descent – A wonderful space flight sim / fighter game. This one will really raise your pulse when the clock is ticking. Unfortunately, I don’t know where you can obtain a copy.

Fantastic Contraption – This game really teaches you to think outside the box, and it’s a free browser based game. Honestly, this is a great game for kids or adults who like puzzles and building. People have come up with some really brilliant solutions to these problems, it’s amazing to see what can be built.
