Got a quiet 50 hours or so?

October 26th, 2006

Found via some source I cannot now remember (sorry!), is this collection of 100 scanned issues of Computing Gaming World. The collection covers from 1981 to 1992, so it’s a pretty dramatic period in computer games. The first issue covers mainly computer based wargames (with a very prescient essay about the advantages that computer war games have over table based games), all the way through to reviews of Links 386 (which I remember playing) and Wolfenstein 3D.

Fortunately for my productivity at work, I can’t access the actual PDF files from work, so I’ll have to read them from home.
