I spent Christmas, as most do, away with family and, as such, I was away from my home computer.
The old man's pc is a few years old, and the specs are just awful by today's standards, but what I found up there on the hard-drive was a long forgotten install of Unreal Tournament.
I must have put it on there years ago.
In between feeds of turkey and ham, I managed to load it up and was pleasantly surprised at just how much fun I was having with this timeless FPS classic. Having been a big fan of the UT franchise, I found myself actually enjoying it more than my recent copy of UT2004 EC edition. What was also interesting was that I am much better at the original than the sequels and it was tremendous to note just how great that game was for its time.
I bet everyone has a classic game or two that they still enjoy. I bought UT for $20; the entertainment value I've received from it over the years has truly been tremendous.
The "single player" aspect, along with the highly detatailed stats, is what made this such a great game for me. Those were some very well done bots. Still, it was satisfying to start a game with a friend and throw in some auto-adjust bots only to see later they had to jump to difficulty 10 to keep up. :wink:
