If all you’ve got to keep you entertained this summer is an aging computer, I have some good news: One of this year’s best games is designed to look like it runs on an old PC.

This wasn't what I was hoping for. In my mind, this would be some sort of cookie version of Cinnamon Toast Crunch — light and airy with a sugary, spicy sweetness. Instead it's like a tile from the bathroom counter, a stiff slab that smells like syrup.
