We’ve had a bit of a discussion about golden years, particularly the massive string of games that dropped in the late ’90s. But if you were a PC gamer in particular, there was one year that changed the shape of the market permanently.
I’ve been thinking a bit about System Shock this week, with all of the chatter around Prey and its treatment of the Looking Glass legacy. And that got me wondering: what is people’s favourite sci-fi take on the horror genre?
Should I care about Solarix? Yes and no. I really love what Solarix tries to achieve — a new game in the mould of the original Deus Ex or System Shock 2 — but it lacks their spirit, their soul.
