PC Games have always the main reason behind that insistent pestering you had on your dad to get home a ‘computer’. What we did with computer was anything but compute. We’d install these games ( which I fondly remember doing from a floppy disk with a retractable holder, sigh..! ) and play these games. Even our ‘computer/IT classes back in school had these games, and we’d automatically finish off our assignments and get to playing them. These PC games from back in the day ( 90’s more specifically ) will make you nostalgic for sure. Have a look :
