The classic FPS/RPG System Shock 2 got re-released on GOG.com today.
I've been waiting for this for over a decade.System Shock 2 is considered one of the best games of all time. It's impact (and the impact of the
original) on video games is huge. BioShock was hugely influenced by System Shock 2.
I've never been able to play it. When I was little, I got it for Christmas but it wouldn't run on my computer, so I've made a few more attempts
over the years to get it, with no luck. When I found out about GOG, I was sure they would have it. When they didn't, all I could do was wait. Now,
It's coming to Steam soon too.
For those interested in learning a little bit of why it took such a popular game so long to be available for download
explains it a little bit.
And for those who can't stand old graphics, I think there's some mods out there to spruce up the engine a bit.
