SFX: Some of the most inspiring, exciting, enduring sci-fi and fantasy experiences aren’t to be found on TV or in books. They’re waiting for you in virtual worlds created for your benefit by games developers, and have been for decades. SFX has compiled what we believe is a decent list of 20 awesome games that you should have played.
If you’re one of the lucky few who’ve been indulging since the very earliest days, we hope you’ll find something in the next few pages to bring a nostalgic tear to your eye (who can forget their first go on Lords Of Midnight on the ZX Spectrum?). However, if you’ve never so much as picked up a joypad in your life, you’ll soon discover that there’s a ton of inspiring sci-fi, fantasy and horror stories that you’ve been missing out on – so maybe track some of these badboys down before you pick up a console and start your new life as a gamer.
