   Right now, on GOG, you can purchase the classic LucasArts’ game, “TIE Fighter” for $3.99 (US). I can’t remember how many hours of my 20’s I spent in the virtual cockpit of a X-Wing and a TIE. I picked up X-Wing last year, and it plays fine on my Windows 10 Laptop.

   It runs on Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10), Mac OS X (10.7.0+) and Linux (Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 16.04).

Minimum system requirements –
