The best Tom Clancy games: A great storyteller's lasting legacy

MMGN: Tom Clancy passed away today aged 66. The best-selling author left an irreplaceable mark on the gaming industry that will see his name live on anchoring games such as The Division.

In 1996 Clancy co-founded developer Red Storm Entertainment. Its first game was Tom Clancy's Politika, likened to Risk, for PC before Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six proved their worth in 1998.

But that's not where games began for the celebrated storyteller. Clancy’s first foray into video games was all the way back in 1987 when his book The Hunt for Red October was made into a submarine simulation game for the Apple II and Commodore 64. Another version was made three years later to coincide with the movie.

The story is too old to be commented.

Was that the one where it is basically the same plot as taken, or was that the second one? If it was the second one, what was the first one about.

Been so long since I read them.

Haven't read that splinter cell book. I have read the Rainbow Six books though.

My favorite game with his name attached to it of all time was PC version of Rainbow Six: Raven Shield.

I cried when i found out

I could be completely wrong here, but I always held the belief, and thought it to be the popular opinion, that Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory was miles above any other Splinter Cell.(OK, not miles better then Pandora Tomorrow, but still better)
