    Sadly yes but the views were great on the way back.

    Definitely, waiting for a play station sale again.

    Just found out yesterday that several months ago my sibling found a copy of Marvel vs Capcom at a car boot sale! This is the only arcade game I am aware of where I have held the highest score on a machine (both Sanford Airport in Florida and a Namco station at the Trafford Centre).

    *old fart alert*

    Arcade games (the old 10p ones)
    Daley Thompsons Decathlon
    Tetris
    PacMan
    - 2 buttons and a joystick for all of these games

    Sinclair Spectrum (not the Spectrum 48/128)
    Thunderbirds

    That's all

    :laugh:

    My first computer was a Sinclair. The ZX 81 with enourmous amount of RAM.....1KByte :laugh:

    Must've been 1980 if I remember it correctly.


    @CazCat I see you bought The Witcher 3 and RDR2. Did you really ended the story of RDR2? Fantastic. I wished I could do that. But I always have my problems with ending Rockstar Games. The same I had with RDR (1) and the GTA series. I'm not made for it, seemingly. But kudos for ending RDR2!

    But I ended The Witcher 3, of course (it's not from Rockstar. Maybe that's the reason ;) ).
    One of the best RPG ever made, imo (beside The Elder Scrolls : Skyrim)

    @TLC: Donkey Kong. Loved it back then when you had to go to arcade to play it.

    I finished RDR2 dying from TB and looking into the sunset than rather (I have been told) shot by Micah?

    Still going through Witcher and it is an epic game.

    I've still got a working Mega Drive with all of the Streets of Rage cartridges. Brilliant games. Had a nostalgic weekend a couple of years ago and completed all 3 with the missus. The first time she'd ever seen a Mega Drive but she loved it :laugh:.

    Wasn't so keen on my old Atari 7800 though. Just a bit too 80s and basic.

    Daley Thompsons Decathlon was good, I had that on the C64. I didnt play much Tetris, but I always liked Columns, so I think I'd have liked that as well.

    Only recollection I have of the C64 was playing some Terminator game at a friend‘s house.

    I think I had that one as well. You had to load all the games from a cassette (same with Spectrum and Amstrad). It's a million miles away from today's standards, but I always look back on the C64 with fond memories.

    Kinell. Remember nearly all of those. The double I remember battering along with Tracksuit Manager

    Rambo, Matchday 2 and Kiickstart 2 were my earliest games.

    Indeed, some of the best games I've played have been picked from purely looking at the box alone. I think now you know so much about it going in that it's either exactly what you expect or disappointing, rarely do I play a game now and it surprises me with how good it is.

    If anyone ever played Theme Hospital, there's a game called Two Point Hospital which is pretty much Theme Hospital v2.0
