Submission + - Elite turns 25 (

satellite17 writes: "The BBC notes that the classic space combat / trading Sim Elite is 25 ears old today. Elite was one of the first 3D games produced for a home computer and also one of the first open ended games. It's open ended nature meant that even though it was popular with friends of the creators, David Braben and Ian Bell, they initially struggled to find a publisher. "They just didn't get it, they wanted a high score and they wanted players to have three lives," Braben said. It is also credited with influencing quite a few modern classics."
