Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
Uplink is a game where you are a faceless hacker just getting into the underground scheme. When you first open the game it immediately immerses you in the world, as the title screen could pass for a part of the game. After you create your saved game, you're released into the world where you have to hack your way to the top as if you were in a blockbuster film. Nothing too tricky, but the more advanced you are the cooler stuff you can do. Later on there is a story that becomes more evident and gracefully allows you to interject if you wish. In fact, it's possible to ignore it and some other lame sucker gets the job to thwack the opposition in the face. This game has aged very well and I recommend playing it if you want an excuse to get away from twitch gameplay.
