  1. Cool list, but I was a little disappointed to find that the versions of Myst, Riven, and SimCity are not actually the original ones I played way back when, but instead “updated” versions. I was hoping for genuine nostalgia there. However, one thing that SHOULD be on this list is “The Labyrinth of Time,” because that was a particular awesome find and was one of the very first games of this kind. Plus, they haven’t altered anything. (And, in fact, it’s better than ever because my CD-Rom copy had a glitch that always froze it when I got to the ziggurat… I was finally able to complete the game!)

    1. Simcity has been remade ,its called different though. I am looking for it myself but cant find the title anymore . The title is a year like 1374 or 1847 i cant recall. I did find it about a week ago when i didnt have the cash to buy it . It was 99 euro cent
