Eric the Unready (Legend Entertainment, 1993)

One of the first games of 1993, and certainly one of the best of that year, Eric the Unready has an excellent plot which continues to develop throughout via use of extensively graphicized and orchestrated sequences. Unfortunately, Eric the Unready is, however, Legend's easiest game, and there is almost no connection between the many sequences of the game. The professionalism and expertise of Bob Bates shows through in this game, and while I don't quite know WHERE the sequel would be held (play the game, and you will see what I mean), a sequel is definitely warranted, and there is plenty of material for one. With spoofs of many different television shows, movies, books, and other things, there is tons of humor in this game and good entertainment for anyone, though less-experienced gamers would probably get a better value.
