Lost interest in computer and video games decades ago - however this might just get be started again after all the years

So what's your favourite retro game? I was always partial to Head over Heels

Oh yes, my favourite game of all time. It'll inevitably lead to divorce for me if they do bring it out.

And it's crowd funded, get in there! -

I almost messed my pants when i first saw it on a BBC B at secondary school :) Had it on the C64 and got to Deadly (how sad!!!) or maybe Dangerous...cant quite remember as it was a while ago :roll:

Loved Bubble Bobble and still play that on an emulator with my children.

Ah the days when a computer game was more than just pretty graphics, Elite was always a favourite. Another really good game was Carrier Commander, lost loads of my life playing that on the Amiga.

Anyone watch Zero Punctuation ?

Elite wasn't my cup of tea really. I wasted most of my childhood playing this

There's been an excellent open-source 'copy' of Elite for some time now... although admittedly you can't beat wireframe graphics 8)

And if we're onto old-skool gaming, don't get me started on Dwarf Fortress :oops:
