Playing an SP game over... in The Video Gaming Industry Discussion Posted May 31, 2007 There are some very old SP games that I played religiously. Red Storm Rising, M1 Tank Platoon, Gunship 2000 and Wings on Amiga. X-COM series, Harpoon, Fleet Command, M1 Tank Platoon 2 and Aces Over Europe/Pacific. That is a great list. Amazing how some older games captured our imagination and long term appeal more then some recent ones. Red Storm Rising was such a great game, same with M1. Its really not that strange that games of old perhaps captured us more than they generally do today. We were younger and had a much smaller frame of reference. After playing a couple of hundred games you obviously become more blase' about the whole thing and expect more from the experience. the X-com series was freaking excellent, but If I played through it again today the chances are that it would only ruin a childhood memory ive spent a decade hyping and romanticising over in my head!
