Playstation 2 controller to USB adapter?

Hi all, I want to start playing a few emulators again (gave up years ago because I can't stand using a keyboard for games, got well far in Chrono Trigger too!). I see you can buy Playstation 2 to USB adapters on eBay? Are these any good? They are nice and cheap but that usually means they break quic...

Re: RETRO game music done in Acapella - Great Listen!

Saw a few of these a while ago, forwarded onto 3 mates, all 3 said they hated it and was the most annoying videos they had ever heard.
So I didn't bother telling anyone else haha!

But then again they aren't into retro gaming, so there. :lol:

Games your parents played more than you?

When I was very young I had an Amstrad CPC 464 with the coloured screen :) I remember seeing Andy Capp in a local M&W shop and wanting it, but my Mum convinced me to buy Chuckie Egg instead. Then she spent more time playing it herself haha! Anyone else with similar experiences? :lol: I was born in 8...

Re: Toki...

Remember playing this as a child on my cousin's Lynx.
Thought it was decent. Recently played again through emulator and still good :P

Never got very far in it though. Good sound effects and music. Will definitely give it another go one day. :P

Re: Games that make you feel epic

God of War is the first game that I think of too.

I've only played God of War 2 but straight away into fighting that big statue thing I was literally like "SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!" STAB IN THE EYE.

Re: SNES - Super Adventure Island - Difficulty level!

Just to clarify, I haven't been trying to complete this game for 21 years lol!

I gave up when I first got it as a child because it frustrated me so much.
And recently got it back out again to get it done.

But yeah maybe I'm not as good as some others, and I can definitely take criticism :lol:

Re: One Song That Defines SEGA

I've always been a Nintendo boy, but whenever I think of playing on any mate's Segas as a child the first song that comes into my head is the first level on Sonic. Green Hill Zone!

Listening on youtube again now and yep it's great still :D

Re: Experiencing headaches, dizziness or nausea?

When I was younger I could never play Duke Nukem and some other first person shooters without feeling what I called "car sick". BUT, I remember playing Doom fine. So it's definitely all about how the character moves (swaying left to right I think causes it). Recently picked up an N64 bundle, can pla...

Love this forum! Cheers!

Well the top right one I think I can see like 2 fighting blokes stood sideways, so I automatically thought either Final Fight or Double Dragon but looking on ebay the labels don't match up with either? And they are both rare aswell.
