Crucial Classics: Oregon Trail
1UP.com has, as usual, an awesome article up covering one of the greatest games ever. Period. No doubt. Word.
Personally, Oregon Trail was the first software I ever used in school as an education tool. Like most 7 year olds I thought the square bullets were the best part, but I’ll be damned if this game didn’t teach me such important things as how risky river crossings can be and that life without antibiotics would really, really suck.
