    Possibly the earliest mainstream FPS to default to mouse aiming, this classic was a delightful chance to experience the best setting of the Terminator movies; post-apocalypse.

    Ashamed to say I rented it from a local game store and found the absence of any copy protection an easy way to keep playing. Now I have a legit copy but the original developers didn’t see any of it as I bought it used :(.

    The sequel Skynet (1996) is also a DOS classic–IMO–and has a fun MP mode which we tried in the school’s video lab for “Chess & Strategy” club.

    I’d second this! Such incredible atmosphere and well ahead of its time in so many ways.

    Oh wow, they made even more Terminator games?

    I knew of this one from 1990: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Terminator_(DOS)

    I had no idea they made more later on!

    Funny enough I also played “The Terminator” (1990) too, having bought it expecting much greatness. Yet was disappointed at how crude and difficult it was, though I was also even younger than when I first played Future Shock.

    I’d recommend doing most of the Terminator games separately though as they vary quite a bit. Maybe Future Shock and Skynet could go together since the engines are so similar and they are too long.
