    Hey,

    I’d like to suggest the “The Settlers” series. “The Settlers” was released in 1993, “The Settlers 2” in 1996.

    I mainly played “The Settlers 2” at the time and it was the very first, real-time city-building / economics game for me. It had great, cute graphics and animations for the time and it was super fun building up your own little economy while avoiding to get overrun by your enemies.

    Settlers 1 and 2 were released for MS-DOS. The full series consists now of eight or nine games.

    He, I remember playing Settlers 2 with a friend and two mice on one PC. It was blowing my mind to find out that would work!

    Didn’t know that was possible in Settlers 2. I always played alone.

    How did that work though? Was it a split screen game? Must have been weird with the low resolution at the time.

    Yep! Vertically split screen. Resolution wasn’t too bad, settlers supported at least 640×480, maybe even more, I don’t remember exactly.

    I support this suggestion. Played Settlers 2 as a kid and still do. I recommend taking a look at http://www.siedler25.org so that you can adjust to a bigger resolution and even play online and keep the whole screen for yourself.
    Love this game

    Settlers 1 had amazing gameplay music!

    Settlers 1 seems quaint now, but its “economic dependency tree” was really exceptional back then.

    It was also very fun and satisfying to observe the little people perform activities specific to their role as they transformed resources into useful products.

    Settlers 2 then improved on pretty much all aspects.

    Settlers 1 also had that split-screen multiplayer and I played that with a friend, it was pretty special!
