Of computer gaming that is, there were games like Privateer and Wing Commander that everyone had to get their hands on. These games were way ahead of their time and the systems to run them had to be as well. Well if you remember these games and miss them just a little there are open source remakes being done as we read. You can head over to the Wing Commander Privateer remake site and download a visually updated but still classic version of Privateer. You can also head over to the Vegastrike site on sourceforge for another open source classic space game in progress. Have fun remembering the good ole days. Believe me these will take you back.
