GOG.com is great for setting off huge waves of nostalgia for games that you had when you were a kid. Sure, they may suck, but nostalgia doesn’t like to hear that. Case in point: Megarace.
Around 1994, we got a new family computer. That was back when there was a family computer, back before the parents and the siblings each had their own computers— if a family had a computer, it was just “the computer”. The family computer. The computer we got was a Packard Bell, a little before Packard Bell became synonymous with shit computers. It wasn’t the best computer on the block, but it was leaps and bounds better than what we had before. And it had Megarace pre-installed.
Megarace is a sort of an F-Zero game, where you’re racing along 3D-ish tracks in your futuristic cars, but it had, like many games at the time, full motion video. Looking back, FMV is pretty fucking awful, but at the time it seemed so cutting edge and futuristic, even when it was awful looking and annoying.
Anyway, the point of Megarace was that it was supposed to be this virtual reality game show of the future, hosting by this guy played by Lance Boyle, and you raced against other cars, wasn’t terribly hard and in between, you got to hear Lance Boyle shout at you. It was good times, really it was.
If you’re having a nostalgia fit already, you can grab Megarace and Megarace 2 for just $6 here at GOG.com.
