This morning, all I heard was Northwest this and Delta that and Cincinnati and Memphis and hubs and headquarters and blah blah blah.

AerobizWith all of this merger talk running rampant – I mean, we’re talking big important stuff here – is it bad that the only thing I could think of was playing Aerobiz for my Super Nintendo?

Games like this amaze me. Like Railroad Tycoon. Or SimFarm. How did games like this get made? Who said, “We need a game that’s actually a job!” and someone else in the room said, “PERFECT!”

Aerobiz was my favorite – you play as an airport executive, you raise ticket prices, you forge into Paris and purchase DC-10s. Now that I think about it, it sounds pretty boring. But I loved it.

Now, if only I had a Super Nintendo. Because I just can’t seem to hop on that emulator bandwagon.
