Illustration for article titled Go Play Games With Earthquakes In Them

October 17 marks the anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake — that famous 1989 one that rocked Northern California during an Oakland Athletics/San Francisco Giants game.

So all this week, I'm going to try to play games with earthquakes in them. I guess I could widen that to include games with bridge collapses, since part of the Bay Bridge fell during the quake. And if I was feeling really desperate for something to do, I could go find a copy of R.B.I. Baseball since I was probably playing that instead of watching the real ballgame that day.


Here's what I've got:

Bad Day L.A.
Incredible Crisis
Any SimCity game
Cities XL
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask – if you let the moon crash into the planet
Any Final Fantasy game where enemies keep casting Earthquake
Quake – even though there aren't any earthquakes in it

Anybody got any other games I can add to this obscure list?
