Hacking game extraordinaire with a futuristic storytelling

Uplink changed everything about hacking games when it first came out. Sure, there were hacking sims done before this one cape, but generally they were more like lock cracking minigames, pushing some puzzles toward you that required attention and at times thinking outside the box, thinking laterally. But Uplink brought so much more to the table: there was a story that made sense behind your scheming and lifting of classified information, there was pressure, there were puzzles that involved you not only at a technical level, but involved you in the world of the game. In terms of hacking missions, there was also so much more variety, from data stealing, to sabotage, to money laundering, to data deletion and so much more. Basically the amount of work that was possible within the game was just astounding. To add spice, later on in the game there were stages that allowed you to gamble on the the stock market, a feat that was made easier by your, well, “intermissions” in some of the buy ins and sell outs. So, when you feel like going full time into cybercrime, Uplink is the way to go, afresh, technically proficient game, and one that really changed the amount such a puzzler could get through to the player. Just so you can do a comparison go play Hacker, an older and simpler game of hacking.
