RIP Ralph Baer
I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...
Defense Zone required strategic thinking, as there was no superweapon, and only smart combinations of turrets could help the player win. The game featured a fine balance of resources, weapon power, number of enemy units and their vitality. Many types of beautiful landscapes and realistic visual effects greatly contributed to the game's popularity.
