What Consoles/Computers Do You Regret Letting Go?

For me it has to be my West-German Commodore 8032-SK, it was purchased from the Staffordshire County Council when they were replaced their systems with IBM PC-AT's in around 1984-85. (I got one of those too eventually) It was used almost every day up to about 1989 when an Amiga took over it's job in...

Over the Top

Why is that not on the list?

Over the Top is without a doubt on of the greatest films ever made and has one of the best soundtracks of all time.

Hehe, you may be right, I certainly like the 6 month rule.

I have a MegaDrive II with MegaCD II that just lies around the house doing nothing as I use my MegaDrive1/MegaCD1/32X combo.

So thats more to get rid of using rossi's rule!

The second I saw the thread title I thought Another World, but you beat me to that :P Others that spring to mind are Fade to Black on PC and Deep Fear on the Saturn. And indeed its 'sequel' of sorts, Flashback. I played that one much more. It rules :) Was not a sequel of any sort. The sequel to Anot...
