This blog started out as an attempt to play every Ultima game starting at Akalabeth but quickly changed into a more ambitious (or foolish) attempt to play every game ever developed or published by Origin Systems. Origin have been my favourite developer for years and I’d been collecting all their games but still hadn’t finished half of them and this seemed like a good excuse to start.
With the Origin games more or less out of the way, I started branching out into playing fan games, games made by Origin’s more famous ex-employees, ports for other computers/consoles and looking at and scanning any relevant books I could find.
Nearly 10 years after starting, I’ve still not entirely run out of potential Origin material but most of the obvious candidates are out of the way and I can only take playing ports of the same game so many times. So as of 2016 I’m branching out to cover whatever old games I happen to want to play and will throw a bit of Origin into the mix as and when. The general idea is to make use of some of the sizable collection of games I’ve amassed over the years instead of having them just sit on shelves. The games covered could be any format but my platform of choice is most definitely DOS and I’ll be concentrating heavily on oldschool PC gaming.
