6 Amazing Older Overlooked PC Games

I don't know if it's nostalgia or what it is but I love 90's and early 2000's era PC games. Everyone know's about classics from that era such as Roller Coaster Tycoon and Starcraft, but there are many other amazing games from that time period. Here's a list of 6 Amazing Older Overlooked PC Games.

6. Monopoly Tycoon

This is a game that I got for a gift and was honestly going to pass by without playing. I'm glad I tried it out though because it was tons of fun! It's a hybrid of Monopoly and Sim City. It's more of a city management game than a board game. Definitely recommend trying this one out.

5. Sacrifice

I saw one of my friends playing this game forever ago and thought it was one of the funniest games ever. It's a mix of RPG and RTS, you're a wizard commanding armies from a first person perspective rather than the omnipotent style of most RTS's. Every unit drops souls upon death and they are the 'currency' of the game. If you like RPG's and RTS's, this is a fun one.

4. Maxis Games

I'm adding Maxis Games in here because even though the maxis games where well known, it's likley that you looked over atleast one of them. These were some of the best games I've played, with SimCopter getting special recognition for being my favourite. Many hourse where spent smashing into buildings while trying to chase down a robber, or trying to put out a fire.

Some of the best Maxis games were: SimCopter, SimAnt, SimEarth, Streets of Sim City, SimFarm, SimLife, SimIsle, SimSafari, SimPark, and SimTower.

3. Jurrassic Park: Tresspasser

Boob's and Dinosaurs. What more do you want from a video game?

It's arguable whether this game was overlooked, or was just a shitty game. I personally had great fun with the game, but there were definitely some bugs to be had. The game got bad reviews for clunky graphics and lagging on most PC's at the time. The open world atmosphere and scale of the game however had me entertained!

2. Theme Hospital

I probably spent more time on this game than any other game I own. You run a hospital, curing tons of fictional diseases such as "The Squits", "Uncommon Cold", and "Bloaty Head". You have to deal with angry doctors and puking patients, there's even a rat shooting level!

1. Jeff Wayne's The War of the Worlds

This is a unique RTS. The infrastructure management and unit building is turn-based, but the actual battles are real time. It's based on H.G. Wells novel and came out well before the Tom Cruise movie based on the same novel. It can be quite challenging, early and late game the Martians have a distinct advantage, but mid-game the human's seem to be stronger. If you want a unique game that's tons of fun, try this one out. There was also a first person shooter spin off of this game released a year later by Jeff Wayne as well for Play Station.
