    Default Playing It Old School: The interactive magic of Star Wars

    I just published the newest Playing It Old School . This is a weekly column I try to keep that focus on old video games and how they have impacted modern gaming along with pop culture.

    Playing It Old School: The interactive magic of Star Wars takes a look at the history of Star Wars games. With the release of Star Wars: The Old Republic and the re-release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Playing it Old School looks back at a history of Star Wars-games from the 80ís up until the early 2000 while reminiscing over some notable classics.

    I'm looking for feedback on how I did, what I missed and what I could write about in the next article.

    Um, for starters, you misspelled Dark Forces as Dark Force. Twice. In fact, I'm afraid a fair amount of your grammar and spelling is off.
