I had a saturn when it was out.

But being at school at the time, and not having loads of cash, I never really got to try a lot of games.

I have a DC just now and it is my favourite console of all time, so I'm looking forward to trying out the Saturn games I never played in the past

I think the guy must have sat up all night trying to think of a name.

If I had a computer shop I would totally call it "Bytes & PC's" :D

We had a great shop about 5 miles from our house called "The Software Shop" It was the first shop I ever seen that swapped games (£4 a swap) so you could take your old games in and swap them for something else - it seemed amazing at the time! The games were all in these glass case things on the wal...

I'm not convinced about the Wii.

Too many of the games seem to be "let's release the same game as on PS2, but with the fun feature of having to wave a stick to control it!"

I don't think the atari one done that. :( I do remember having it for the spectrum, and when you loaded it up it asked you to insert a credit card number on the screen where you buy your equipment. I guess it was some sort of password system for the game, but at that young age I honestly thought tha...

Your Most Disappointing Purchase Ever?

What game have you been really looking forward to, only to discover that it really really sucked? I got an Amiga CD32 when it came out. I was only about 13 at the time and all my mates tried to talk me out of it, but I thought it was great at the time (and the Man Utd game for it is the greatest foo...

Seriously, I think something is wrong with me :D I was in Gamestation at lunchtime and didn't see a single game that interested me. I watched the trailer of GTA 4 on their demo screen and just thought "meh" I got Gears of War when it came out and got bored with it after 2 days. I bought DiRT a few d...

Ghostbusters on the Atari 2600! I must have been about 5 or 6 years old. Before that I had only played "Pong" type games on those consoles that had the 6 pong variations under the guise of Hockey, Football, etc. I couldn't believe how real Ghostbuster looked, haha. Not knowing the word "Graphics" at...

Fed up with Modern Gaming

Hey folks. Been reading this forum for a few weeks now but I've only just registered. I've got an Xbox 360 at the moment, but I am completely and utterly bored with modern games. If it's not Generic WW2 shooter 43 it's Fifa 200X. I am sick of the flashy graphics and non-existent gameplay. So i've go...
