Did you notice the awesome Magma reference in the title? I tell you what, Skyrim is really putting me back in touch with my progressive/teutonic origins.
This piece from GameSpite Journal 10 pretty much pegs it: I did not get Drakkhen when I rented it 20 years ago. At all. It was a wide-open, confusing, hostile video game. Random things happened. The world was a vast, empty space. Giant cat heads appeared out of the ground for no reason. I seem to recall constellations randomly coming to life and killing me. But — as indicated in the opening paragraph of this blog entry — I have a lot more experience with open-ended, Western-style RPGs these days. Maybe I’d better appreciate Drakkhen if I tried it again. Then again, maybe I’d just become so frustrated with the game that I’d want to scoop my brain out with a melon baller.
