Game of the Week: System Shock and the deep pleasures of immersive sims - Eurogamer.net

Story Highlights:

System Shock has aged pretty well, I gather, partly because the remake has been handled with real delicacy, based on an understanding of what needs to be updated for modern tastes and what would be cutting into the bone a little too deeply.

This is, to many eyes, where the genre began, a genre that, as Kaan put it beautifully in his review, inspires "consistent creative problem solving".

Is there a more tantalising genre name than "immersive sim"?
