If you're stumped for something to play this weekend, you might find some inspiration in this enormous weekend sale at GOG.com (opens in new tab) , which has lined up 26 of EA's goodest oldest games and shot 60% off their asking prices with the discount gun. $62.14 will get you all the Ultimas, Wing Commanders, Populi (Populouses?) and Dungeon Keepers, plus loads more, or you can buy each game individually for $2.39, which should be about £1.49 in old money.

With Chris Roberts back in the limelight courtesy of Star Citizen, now might be a good time to revisit (or finally play) his Wing Commander titles, and see Mark Hamill in his other famous sci-fi role. (Professional bad guy, and former actor, Malcom McDowell also stars, as Space Marshal Sir Geoffrey Tolwyn.) Of course, it's always a good time to play Ultima Underworld, the dungeon crawling spin-off of the Ultima series - that is, if you can get used to the archaic controls. You'll have your own highlights from this bountiful collection (opens in new tab) , but if you're tempted you might want to get a wriggle on - the sale ends in two-and-a-half days.

His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet.
