Finally, you didn't think I would forget about all those other gamer Moms like me out there, did you? No way! I have to thank Ybother for bringing us this list of Top 10 Classic Game Remakes posted at A Top Ten List Everyday to Jumpstart Your Knowledge, since, "It is the summer holidays and many people have plenty of time on their hands. Some of us are stuck with laptops and can’t play the huge blockbuster games that require hefty graphic cards. Why not try these classic open source remakes? The underlying gameplay has already been proven and the graphics are updated to a presentable and playable level. Everyone of these games listed here were best sellers of their times and many of us hold great memories of these games."
That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of the
