When these Windows PC games appeared in the 90's they
were purchased by tens of thousands of Windows personal computer owners. They could play offline or go online and compete
against other players. A couple years later in 2000 Windows XP arrived
on the scene bringing a more robust operating system. Twenty years later most
of the world is using Windows 10 and those classic PC Golf games still
have online presence and tournaments sites. They are now referred to as
legacy video games. Examples: Links LS
2003 and Tiger Woods PC PGA 2008.
When 2014 rolled around a new and more realistic looking golf
game was released. It's name is Perfect Golf
created by the design studio Perfect
Parallel, Inc. This is not a standalone golf game like it's predecessors.
Perfect Golf requires downloading a gaming client known as Steam.
