Museum Monday #31

Monday. Busy Monday. Busy as hell Monday, but also one featuring the 31st addition to the pointlessly celebrated Museum Monday series. An addition exclusively dealing with legendary publisher Origin (of Lord British fame), thus linking to the aptly named Origin Museum. Just follow the link and relive the glory days of the PC. The lovingly remembered era of Ultima and Wing Commander. The era before DOOM; even before Wolfenstein 3D. The era of still impressive game boxes , as the following picture should illustrate.

    This really brings back the memories. I've kept my original Wing Commander box and all of its trimmings intact as a monument to the way things ought to be...
