Staying at home had us reminiscing back to high school when we’d have enough time to boot our PCs up and squeeze in a little game time before doing homework and getting eight hours of sleep. Ah, simpler times. Back when Facebook was a just newcomer who's out to end Friendster’s career and social media wasn’t quite a thing yet, people would often pass time playing games on their desktop computers. Just ‘cause we’re feeling extra senti right now, here are five online and PC games that might sound familiar. Do you recognize any?

Gazillionaire

Developer: LavaMind

Gazillionaire is a PC business strategy game where players travel around different planets to trade commodities and boost their company’s profit and net worth. It’s up to you to decide which planet is worth visiting, when to sell commodities for the best price, how you manage your money, pay your employees, and come up with a business strategy to beat your competitors.

Club Penguin

Developers: RocketSnail Games, New Horizon Interactive, Disney Interactive Studios

Who could ever forget this iconic virtual world? Club Penguin is an online multiplayer game where you get to have a penguin as an avatar, interact with other players, play games to earn points. You can also customize your penguin’s color, outfits, and igloos. Many players also log on to its different servers to make friends and chat with other players about literally anything. The OG Club Penguin no longer exists, but a remake of it called Club Penguin Rewritten was created in 2017 and it’s exactly like the original version. The remake remains operational to this day and can be accessed here.

Poptropica

Developer: Jeff Kinney Group

Another online game featuring a virtual world, Poptropica is technically a game intended for kids. Each island in the virtual world features a specific storyline where a mission unfolds for players to partake in. While chat is limited to game-generated scripts, players still get to customize their avatars’ looks. Poptropica is still accessible online, but it’s also been developed as an app in 2019 so you could play straight from your phone.

Friends For Sale

Developer: Zynga

Back in high school, you don’t tell your crush you like them. You buy them on Friends For Sale and prevent anyone else from outbidding you. The game was available as an application on Facebook where you could buy your Facebook friends, sell them, and give them gifts using the game’s currency. It quickly rose to popularity back when Facebook games were still a thing.

Pet Society

Developer: Playfish

Pet Society was what Adorable Home is to many of us right now. Also an application on Facebook, players would spend hours on end to customize pets, look after them, buy them nice clothes, decorate their house with expensive furniture, visit friends’ virtual homes, and buy them cute virtual gifts. The game has officially been retired in 2013 and it has been deeply missed since.

When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.

You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.

You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
