I started playing Dark Forces for the first time while The Mandalorian season 2 was coming out (a happy coincidence that both feature dark troopers and Boba Fett) and while my old PC wasn’t working for several months, I recently got it working again and went back to playing. It’s a great game. I never knew shooting pixelated stormtroopers could bring me so much happiness.

It’s amazing how much older games don’t walk you through levels, they totally leave it up to you to figure out. Each level is like a puzzle to solve, and I really like that aspect of it.

I’ve been watching some ‘Let’s Play’ videos for Jedi Knight: DF II recently (from youtube channel LightingBoltForever: https://www.youtube.com/c/LightningBoltForever/featured) and I think I know what I’ll be playing next. The new choice of weapons and lightsaber combat features in particular look fun.
