Tough between 16bit and 128 bit, but I have to go with 128. The 16 bit era introduced and refined many great games though, but with the advent of 3d gaming 2d was left behind. 3d gaming was perfected in the 128 bit era, which for people who enjoy platformers was really important, as the camera probl...

Thanks - while playing on it I did notice that I had to contort myself into bizarre positions to get the best light onto it. I have always imagined the sp to be uncomfortable to play on - it looks it. I could take it back to gamestation and replace it - they had a couple of sp's there. Would it be w...

I have never had a problem with the ps2 controller, and as I use that the most I guess I would plump for that as the most comfortable. I have to say though that although the N64 controller is comfortable, its quality really, really sucks! It just feels soooo cheap, and the analogue stick is terrible...

I have just bought a Game Boy Advance - I have been looking at the games for it and they seem really good! It isnt the SP version but I think the older one looks better anyway - esp. in white!!

So what does everyone on here think of the GBA - good purchase?

Essential games anyone?

Well as I had to pop into town the urge was too much and I went into gamestation and bought FF X for £7 - I will play it as soon as I have finished Ratchet and Clank 2! I also managed to pick up a transparent blue dreamcast controller for £2 - bargain :D

Thanks for all your help everyone!

Thanks for that revgiblet - I think I will go with your suggestions. I had a look at some of the games you mentioned and they are quite resonable to buy, and I wanted to get the sega mega collection anyway! Thanks mate I will definately give them a go - rpg's are such a massive genre now I dont want...

Thanks for those suggestions, although Im still a little confused!!!! I think I will try out final fantasy X and / or Disgaea as they are quite cheap to get hold of, the secret of mana for the SNES is pretty expensive, as is paper mario. I dont want to spend too much on older games I may not like!! ...

Well I star in many plays at the Newbury Theatre, and I "portrayed Nugget with strength and conviction particularly in the powerful scene, which ended the first act when rider and horse were as one."

Excellent stuff!! I am a star!!!!

I dont think I 'discovered' retro gaming one day, I have just never thrown away my consoles or games because I enjoyed playing on them so much, regardless of age. Also I have a fascination to go back to the beginning of a games franchise, and see where it all started. I quite like platform games and...
