notable games I remember fondly

Dizzy - treasure island, fantasy land
Kick Off 2
Shinobi
Turtles
Ghostbusters (on the C64) - legendary game would love to have it on my laptop
frontier
resident evil 1
championship manager



I loved the C64 in that you could go to a newsagents and buy a game for a couple of quid

Shinobi is an unlockable game on that megadrive collection thingy for PS3, but I haven't got a clue how to unlock it. Gutted.

Indeed lol. The games I remember most from the 65XE were Zybex (sidescrolling flying jetpack guy, like R-Type I guess), and Ghostbusters, that was class. And a text adventure that the name excapes me at the moment (I remember basic graphics and a load of stripey walls in most of the rooms you walked into).

What was that thing pre-gameboy? I must have had my brothers one when I was about 7-8 and he'd had it for years before that. Probably around 1994.

Custom built p3 pc
PS2
custom built AMD 3.2GHz pc

Customised AMD phenom based pc.

I'm all for sentimentality, and all of the above were great at the time, but without a shadow of a doubt my favourites are my current pc and the ps3.

Looking back over the years i think the best gaming times were the Nes,Megadrive and Amiga. The golden age for gaming if you will. Lots of Nostalga because thats when i was a kid!
But i think PS2 re-ignited my interest in gaming, the GTA series a lone did that!

Now days i don't think there are enough good games out. Too many angles that have been done to death and don't really bring anything new to the table. Personally i don't really give a monkies about the features on a modern console, don't care about Blu-Ray, don't care about watching films streamed on the 360, don't care about Mii's. I just play games and while we have some good ones were already nearing the next generation of consoles and as of yet im not as fond as the three new ones as i was of the old PS2 and the ones before that. But it is GDC this week so should hear some new games being announced. Like Max Payne 3 :)

It does them in flash so no need to download anything, just like playing the arcade games on this site. Playing Bayou Billy bought back some memories!

I've had loads - back to a ZX80 and ZX81 (with 16k RAM pack) but I never understand the nostalgia thing. I can't think of one console where the old version is better than the latest version (I exclude the PS2/PS3 argument as both games are still current). Things like the Master System were great in the early 90s but I'd rather be playing Far Cry 3 on the Xbox than Alex Kidd 2 any day.

My first 'PC' was a Toshiba HX-10 with the MSX operating system, on which I enjoyed creating my own games. This was followed by a 'permanently borrowed' AMSTRAD 386 from work, which got me hooked on Premier Manager, something I have managed to ensure my sons have inherited, ( though of course it is now Football Manager that runs the risk of bing cited in any future divorce :D ).
