Best 'period' games.

Postby Sut » May 3rd, 2017, 1:36 pm

I really enjoy games that take back to a certain period or use that era as a setting e.g. BioShock and Fallout 3/4 with their 50's styling and of course GTA Vice City for the 80's.

Anyone got any suggestions in a similar vain ? Any good games set in the 60's, 70's or 80's ?

LA Noire immediately comes to mind. It's set in La in 1947.

Hotline Miami is at some indeterminate point in the 80s - the neon-and-pastel visual design and the mix of club tracks and John Carpenter-style synths on the soundtrack certainly scream 80s.
