Uncharted Waters was my favourite back in the day, and still is among the best games I’ve ever played. The other Mega Drive game I really liked was Dune II. It’s not as timeless in itself, but it was the game that practically started the RTS genre, laying its foundations – resource gathering, various buildings each serving its purpose, tactical command of groups of units… Based on an amazing series of novels, Dune throws us in the sandy world of Arrakis, full of danger, sand worms and… spice melange. And the one who controls the spice, controls the universe. The three houses you could pick from were the noble Atreides, the shady Ordos and the evil Harkonnen. It figures that the most badass of the three victory themes (although all three were awesome), was the Harkonnen one. And it’s the one I’m sharing today.
