Wondering what to do this weekend? I have a suggestion for you. To paraphrase the Swedish Chef: "Zork, Zork, Zork, Zork!" Good Old Games is having a fantastic 40% off special on the classic text adventure Zork, along with the other installments in the series: Zork Nemesis, Return to Zork, and Zork: Grand Inquisitor.
In case you ever wanted to see what interactive fiction was all about, check out the classic Zork Anthology for only $3.59, and see what the fuss was. It includes not only Zork 1, 2, and 3, but also Beyond Zork, Zork Zero, and the sci-fi classic Planetfall. Before polygon counts and matrix vertices, there was Zork. Try these out on the cheap, but remember to leave a light on because you don't want to get eaten by a grue.
