Wasteland 2 to Include Original

The release of Wasteland 2 will also include the original Wasteland, reports The Verge, quoting Brian Fargo saying that the inclusion of the original version of the post-apocalyptic RPG was the number one request they received during the fundraising campaign for the sequel, and that EA has been cooperative in making this happen. "It is great to be able to make Wasteland available for those feeling nostalgic or who want to experience it for the first time," says Fargo. "It certainly will not be a pre-requisite to understand Wasteland 2, but it adds some extra flavor if you did play the prequel." Thanks VG247.

The thing is that Wasteland didn't age very well.
The problem isn't the graphics of course, but some of the game mechanics. Like getting stuck in a dungeon with absolutely no chance of getting out because some random pack of monsters 10 times more powerful than you spawned between your location and the exit all 87 times you tried doing it.

The game can get extremely frustrating. I was trying to get out of a cave with my team low on health. I can't get out because of stupid rats. None of them could hit the damn things, and the rats couldn't do enough damage to kill my team either. The rats would do enough damage to knock my team unconscious. They'd wake up get hit and go unconscious again. Every now and then a rat would miss and I'd get a chance to attack or evade. If I did manage to evade, I couldn't leave because the rats were in the way. I couldn't rest and heal without being attacked by the rats.

At first I didn't want to waste ammo on little rats, but since they couldn't hit them with melee weapons I finally had them equip their pistols, but they expended all of their ammo unable to hit shit. I finally just deleted that save and started over.

Yet it's stuff like this that CAN happen that makes the older games a joy to play and memorable long after it's time.

I haven't felt any sense of "I might truly fail" in virtually any game the last 10 years, maybe longer. Original EQ was the last iirc.
