Classic. The first popular FPS.
Not video game related, but something interesting.
I grew up in rural Vermont. Without a lot of neighborly kids to hang out with, I would spend my time building a toy town in my room, and later the attic. As years went by, the town developed buildings, newspapers, a postal service, and even a currency. The Thousand dollar bill had pictures of the Shredder and his warehouse on the front and back.
Civilization 5 world map on the largest map setting. I like to start in the Americas, playing as the Mayans, and fending off the Spanish, or anybody else that wants to “discover the new world.”
It was huge. It was beautiful. And then it was accidentally deleted. To see some Minecrafts that survived my absentmindedness, check out the Tomb Raider section.
The tunnel system in the Selenitic Age was claustrophobic, disorienting, and lonely. It could easily have been half the size. I furiously tried to make sense of it, but as soon as you finish, why spend time refining your map?
Riven, the sequel to Myst. Way more difficult to puzzle through than Myst, but the world and cultures they created were unforgettable.
Who has actually completed Final Fantasy VII? Some games are too big.
GTA Vice City was one of the first games where the world would change the more you played. Your hotel room would acquire purely ornamental items depending on which missions you completed. I attempted to list out when and what changed.
Also, here are some Level Save codes for the first GEX game. LOVED that game.
Not video game related, but hey, I have other interests. Like finding out how tall a human scaled lego figure might be. The answer; 13 bricks.
