Remembering Your First Game Pt 2 of 4: Joe Matar Remembers Zak McKracken

Though my parents had decided that TV gaming was bad, they, for some reason made the justification that if it was on a computer, no problem, so my first official system was a Commodore 64. I got to play loads of C64 games on pirated collections that were casually traded around on floppy disks. I did end up playing versions of a number of system games (like Pitfall!) as many C64 were just ports as well as quite a lot of difficult, simplistic action titles, but very few have stuck with me (though I do still suggest everyone check out Space Taxi). But one game that left a lasting impression was Lucasfilm’s Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders. (Retro, Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders)
