With a job, wife, house, child and another on the way, it’s been years since I’ve been able to get out to a golf course for the real thing. So I started looking around to get a fix for my golf jones and…there’s nothing out there. Where did all the golf games go?
Heck, I remember Mean 18. I played the living hell and designed courses for JNSE. I remember playing Total Pro Golf. I was one of the best in the world at Links '97. I dabbled in Microsoft Golf. I learned the truswing in PGA tour which later became Tiger Woods. I liked the goofy Pangya for a while there. I know there’s been more. Virtually ever since I’ve been playing PC games, I’ve had a golf game.
I have Tiger Woods 2004 and the graphics are severely dated. Yet many say TW 2008 isn’t much beter - and that’s the last golf game made for the PC. So where’d they go? I don’t want some namby-pamby browser golf game. I want one I can make courses on. I want one with real physics.
