The Oregon Trail

For whatever reason, The Oregon Trail, whether on DOS or an Apple II, has a particular place in the hearts of American gamers. Perhaps it’s because of the balanced risk/reward system and straightforward resource management. But it’s more probable that it’s because The Oregon Trail was one of the only non-sucky computer games you could play in school without getting screamed at, giving your 8-year-old self the impression that you’d pulled the wool over your instructors’ eyes.
