Winter Games, Commodore 64

One of many classic Epyx-published multi-event sports games from the Eighties, Winter Games is a collection of playable snow and ice-based Olympic events, but without the official license.

In this you’ve got: biathlon, figure skating, bobsled, ski jump, Hot Dog (a kind of fancy ski-jumping), speed skating, and driveway clearing. Actually, there is no driveway clearing. I just made that up.

At the time of initial release Winter Games was hailed as a masterpiece of gaming, and it still plays very well even today. Many people consider it the best of the Epyx sports games.

What do you think? Is it better than World Games, or not? Get commenting below.
