Yes, in deed. I remember Troopenum was huge when it came out. I
believe Aliens in the Outback came out about the same time. As I
recall ESP and BSC were really popular at roughly the same time on the
list. Also GMA put out Shades of Doom 1.0 around 2001 so that was a
really good year for games and a huge step forward for accessible
gaming. Before that year the majority of the games out there were the
PCs Dos games, Jim Kitchen's Dos games, and GMA's early versions of
Lonewolf and Trek 99 were Dos games as well. Its easy to forget how
much of a driving force BSC, ESP, and GMA were in those days.
Unfortunately, the creative spirit that started the Windows gaming
experience from 2000 to 2004 or so seems to have dried up.
