In said 1994, I was eight, uninformed and poor. I enjoyed computer games very much, but I only had those brought by my father, an increasingly reluctant gamer at the time. He was also the one to bring me few computer and gaming magazines, which I started buing regularly later. But until that time, the few (three or four) computer games magazines he gave me back then were like my bible for about a year. Of all the games I read about over and over, I found 'Wolf' most promising.
What was 'Wolf' about? Living as a wolf. You know, running, hunting, mating, running some more, evading humans, occasionally leading the pack, wolf stuff in general. Basically like 'the Sims', only, you know... more wolfy. Have a look:
What spoke to me so much in this game's prospect was the subject (commanding an endangered, outnumbered and outsmarted animal in its struggle to survive - I was very animal friendly and compassionate at the time) and its seriousness (you know, not the usual heroic, entertaining, hope-building stuff, just... wolf stuff). Only recently I remembered about 'Wolf' and saw a video on its gameplay... I did not expect such a direct control over your wolf! It should all look different! In my mind there will always reamain a mysterious game concept, or a game dream, and all the imagined emotions. Maybe if I was still gaming today, I'd find and play 'Wolf', but I don't feel bad about it remaining only a dream for me.
One more thing: if I liked the game so much, why didn't I just buy it and play the crap out of it? In 1994 I had just learnt that piracy is bad and legal game distribution web exists. I believed that somewhere some rich people could legally buy their games for astronomical amounts of money, but didn't know if it was possible in my galaxy. I started legally buying some of my games around 1996, I think.
If you lasted this far, have a lame pun (or is it an ordinary joke?) as a reward: if everything is coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane.
I also welcome any stories of your mythical or dream game adventures.
