I have to plump for Prince of Persia as it was the only computer game I owned during my years at uni (it came free on my amstrad 1512pc). I pretty much played it to death between writing essays...

Orta was the best thing on my old Xbox - got it for £3.99 in a sale without knowing what it was - and ended up playing it for hours and hours - battling those floating carrier was unforgettable.

if it's snes or nes game I'm usually happy if it even has a box that's in decent condition! :lol:

with the DSi Nintendo is moving away from its current strategy of defining its own market and is try to muscle in on the PSP - long term that might be a mistake as the PSP is simply a much much better multimedia platform. DS should be about the games - nothing else.

For me the ship upgrades made the game - unlike space invaders which only got faster - there was something to aim for. I spent my first holiday abroad totally indoors playing Moon Cresta - at 10 pesetas a go it was dirt cheap in early 80s money - I came home even paler than when I left (rest of the ...
