    Anybody else old enough....

    It REALLY starts to bring back memories at 1:45 of the video. That theme tune!

    I feel sick thinking about that feeling I got when the tape had got to the end but the game hadn't finished loading!

    Push up, I think. Left and right to rotate. It really was my favourite game on the 2600, probably until Starmaster game out (a clear progenitor to Elite). Tanks was actually a very tactical game as they moved so slowly it was hard to simply jump someone.

    Just checked with my emulator on the iPad (how times have changed!) and it is push up to move forwards.

    Never saw Tutankham before. Games were so expensive back then I guess we all had limited libraries. Of course, there was then a surge of rental shops which appeared and it became easier to try new things.

    Another favourite of mine, which I still play on my iPad is HERO:



    Controlling it with the touch screen is a little tricky, but then so was controlling it with the joystick!

    I was 13 at the time and thought that I would never own a computer that powerful... Though I did get one a while later, and of course all our smart phones are now much more powerful that an Amiga 500!

    Was it mortal combat or street fighter. This is one of the first games I can remember playing.

    Will be 34 this year.

    My first computer was a Commodore 64 and shinobi which would have been late 80's I would have been about 10 years old. God I feel old now.

    I was a Spectrum man too start with with external tape player, those were the days.
    Horace goes skiing, R-type, Yi Ar Kung Fu
    then moved up to the 128k, N.e.s, Master System, S.n.e.s, N64, Sega Saturn, PS, now Xbox, waiting on the One now.
    I think I should get out more often.
    At least we don't have to wait ten minutes to load anymore only to crash at the end. That suck major ass.

    They don't make games like they use to! Sure all the graphics are brilliant today, but nothing touches Street Fighter 2 Championship Edition in the arcade for gameplay.

    Anyone remember "How to Be a Complete B*stard" on the ZX Spectrum? Hilarious and infantile. I remember the C64, but having an older brother he had a Commodore 16 I think, that's as far back as I think we went in terms of consoles. My Dad was an IT consultant so we always had PCs, breeze block-sized laptops and an OPD (one per desk) which had Snake and Chess on it, that's all.

    Not that I have time to play games any more, but I'd always play Gran Turismo 1/2 on the PS1/2 before any of the newer ones. The graphics are terrible now but playability is still amazing especially compared to the latest, plasticky, unrealistic gameplay of the new ones.

    Forgot to mention my first ever computer was an Amstrad CPC 464 with a green sceen monitor, it lasted 5 minutes before I blew it up! lol
    Those were the days you had to stick your own plug onto the end of the wire, and the only fuse I had was a 13amp one instead of the recommended 5amp!

    Anyways, we took it back to Toys'R'Us for a full refund, as I was really upset, and my dad got me a SEGA master system instead a week later! Happy Days playing Fantasy Zone and Space Harrier. Infact, I still have an original Phantasy Star1 game and Miracle Warriors, which are collectable classics almost.

    I started on the old ZX80 then the 81 then the original Spectrum with rubber keys and upgraded that to the Speckie +. What a machine. As said before Jet Set Willy was THE game followed closely by Way of the Exploding Fist. I still have all these machines in their boxes up my parents loft so I might go and have a bit of clear out.
