I dread to think how much time I have spent playing the Championship Manager / Football manager games :( From Championship Manager back in 1993 on my trusty Amiga to FM 2006 at the moment, I have spent truly scary amount of my life on those games, surely the gaming version of crack cocaine. It's a w...

Any FIFA game - The biggest travesty in gaming is that this god awful series outsells the genius of Pro Evo. Gran Turismo - ZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzz - like being stuck in a traffic jam on a scorching bank holiday. Championship Manager 4 - The nadir of an otherwise awesome series. Buy the game, load game (a...

Guybrush Threepwood. Swashbuckling my way around Monkey Island, insult sword fighting, drinking grog in the scumm bar, spitting contests, wooing the delightful Elaine Marley, meeting the likes of Stan, Meathook, Herman, Carla, and battling the evil ghost pirate Le Chuck. What more do you want, a thr...

Barbarian.

The fact that you could lose your head pretty much straight away, would have kept the 10ps pouring in, especially in two player games.

Spinning neck chop from Barbarian. Kneel down and punch the face of a fallen bad guy move from Renegade. Knee to head / throw over shoulder from Double Dragon. Frankensteiner throw by King in the Tekken games, + his tombstone piledriver and giant swing. Any of the bone crunching punches and knee blo...

Monkey Island, as for the reasons why.... I did write a very large list but I must have left it in my other pants :wink: Good to see the Last Ninja games get a few votes and I must also mention the Kick Off / Player Manager / Kick Off 2 / Goal series. From the more modern stuff then the Championship...

Other games that I have racked up the hours on would include: Kick Off / Kick Off 2 / Player Manager Elite Speedball 2 Laser Squad SF2 Barbar...

The original Double Dragon arcade game is one of my all time faves, absolute classic.

Also loved Renegade too.
