Skifree was one of those crappy little games that was put on nearly every personal computers in the 90’s thanks to being included in the Microsoft Entertainment Pack. It also happened to be one of my least favorite.

The game is you, an unnamed skier, skiing down a mountain, avoiding hazards, and generally trying to do stunts to increase your ’style’. The goal, then, is to get a high style score. And that’s pretty much it. There’s almost nothing to this game. Its simplicity does not hide a deeply nuanced experience. It’s just you, skiing down a mountain, wiping out occasionally.

Much too simplistic for my taste.
