Alter Ego: Text based Game

A very interesting and thought provoking text based RPG from 1986. It follows the entire life of your "real world" character from birth to death, including marriage, having children, relationships, loans, health problems, family life, mortgages and so on.

Am I making this sound too much like real life and hence too dull? Hell, I hope not. This little text game is AWESOME. I died after a heart attack playing baseball at a very advanced age. Ironic really. I can't stand the bloody sport in real life.My character was survived by his grieving widow Kimberly and married son Kerry. No grandchildren though. Pity.  [link]

It's great. Takes about 2-2 1/2 ours to play through.
