The five best computer games ever

Filed under
Gaming

Summarizing twenty plus years of one's gaming experience into a single piece with just five top titles is quite an intellectual challenge. You have to go through your memory banks and normalize the sensations and thrills you had back then, and never forget the circumstances you played these games. Your first 256-color game, must be something, eh?

Well, I will try to do that. Of course, since I cannot contain myself, I will mention a few runner up titles, which would enter the list if it had more slots.

We will check the top five games that made the revolution, that changed the industry, and the world as we see it.

Every now and then we see some good news about climate change sprinkled in with all the increasingly dire warnings. Yesterday, the New York Times reported that solar and wind energy are starting to become competitive with natural gas. On the same day, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI), based in Massachusetts, announced it had published a paper in Nature Geoscience on experiments run by an autonomous, Linux-based submarine called the SeaBED.
