I've been stuck at work a lot lately, with not really anything to do, the company is pretty heavy with banning inappropriate websites, but I'm pretty much allowed to do what I want on my local machine provided whatever work in need of doing is out of the way.
The only problem with this is that the systems we have a pretty archaic so whatever I try to run has to be pretty basic. Often I'll try and get a game from the early 90's going through dosbox and the computer just won't be able to handle it on top of the proprietary software that has to be left running.
Today being a Sunday I had a six hour shift with about one hours work. so I fired up Sid Meier's Colonisation. I had forgotten how good it was, and with it's tighter focus I'd just about put it ahead of Civilization. On my 30 minute walk home from work I spent my time thinking about Colonisation and navel gazing. Now that I'm home I'm probably going to install it here and spend the afternoon looking past the dated graphics and unrefined (by today's standards) control system and sink some time in a classic
In my love of Navel gazing what old games have the goodjers dredged up recently, any recommendations?
