Right from the days of Space Invaders in the arcades, we humans have been fascinated by the idea of aliens and have celebrated them in video games... by blowing them all to smithereens. That's pretty much how it goes every time. How many games can you think of where we join forces with aliens for the good of the universe?
|Hey, this has got UFOs in it, I could write about this!|
For no particular reason, then, I started looking for my favourite games with aliens in them, to see if I might pick up some more names of people to go bothering with questions. A lot of them, though, seem to have been written by Americans and are therefore ineligible. Zak McKraken and the Alien Mindbenders... Project Firestart... Moonwalker... all games featuring aliens that I can't really include.
But there are plenty that originated on these shores, and I'll be hunting out some of the finest of them for inclusion in this book. What were your favourite alien-related games?
