vcczar Posted March 9, 2022 Share Posted March 9, 2022 I recommend Pro Wrestling Simulator. It's a text-based game in which you run a wrestling company. I found a 1985 mod, which I think is better than the base game because it has historical wrestlers, unlike the default game. In the 1985 mod, you can play as the WWF or the other big wrestling companies of the time. Some of you might not know but I was a big WWF wrestling fan from about 1985 (small kid) to the mid-1990s. Hulk Hogan was probably the first celebrity I knew about. I might have got into wresting because of a WWF cartoon that started showing on Saturday Mornings in 1985--Hulk Hogan's Rock n' Wrestling. So this mod definitely has sentimental value. Post-1990s wrestling isn't as appealing to me, mainly because it seems to focus on violence and pyrotechnics. The fun thing about the "Golden Age" of wrestling is that it was corny as hell. Most of the wrestlers were out of shape. The feuds were ridiculous, often getting started because someone stole someone's hat. The wrestling gimmicks were often politically incorrect by today's standards but had a weird innocence about them compared to the wrestling gimmicks today. In fact, it seems wrestlers tend to wrestle more as themselves today than as a "gimmick." Who wouldn't want to see a wrestling match involving a supposed representative of the IRS named Irwin R. Shyster facing off against a man in a sparkling suit named the Million Dollar Man (when a million dollars was like a billion)? Anyway, it's a fun game if you know anything about historical wrestlers. You don't do any of the wrestling. You're just trying to make money setting the matches, building the teams, etc. Vince McMahon stuff. You can also just "watch" it happen by not taking on a wrestling company and let it sim through the years. That's what I've been doing while working on AMPU.
