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 snow clearing. Actually, there’s no snow clearing. I just made that up…

At the time of initial release (in 1985) 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.
