I feel that I have the same problem.

I have well over 12, 000 retro games.

But, I do try to fit as much in as I can.

If only I didn't have a life to live..

I'd say that some of the most atmospheric games I played would be

Lords Of Midnight
Dungeon Master
Golden Axe
Doom
GTA Vice City
Warcraft III

I'd say that so far people have thrown out some really good titles...

The Speccy version for me Chaps.

I always loved Commando. It also reminded me of Who Dares Wins.

Another game I loved.

It would have to be the Speccy version of course!

I have seen and played both the Amstrad and C64 versions, and I like them.

However I think the version on the Spectrum outshone both others in my opinion.

Renegade is still of my favourite ever games.

I'd say the Spectrum No other console had more enjoyable, fun or playable games than the Spectrum. Also, while the Spectrum did have limitations, I don't think that any other console pushed it limitations to the limit in quite the same way. Close second would probably be a toss up between the Amiga ...

For me, the Spectrum is just so much fun! While there were some C64 games I did really enjoy, such as Excalibur, Taledega and The Human Race as well as others, I am, at heart, a Spectrum man. I thought the graphics were lovely. They always had that nice comic book quality too them. Ok, the colours w...

WOW!

I thought my emulation collection consisting of 3000 Spectrum games, every Magadrive game and 6000 arcade games was impressive.

But my hat is entirley tipped to you!

Actually, I'm thinking of doing that, having a PC ot two, with no programmes, just filled with emulation software and games.

Nice One!

Sounds great that!

I used to love some of the old PC/DOS games such as Hugo's House Of Horrors, Jacaranda Jim and Street Rod.

I also used to really love Price of Persia and the original Duke Nukem games.

As well as a load of other great DOS games...

Personally, I thought Streetfighter should have stopped YEARS AGO! I liked the first FEW games, but I think they have been way too many. The early ones were great fun, especialy when you got to play as a boss, wow! But I have felt that Street Fighter has offered nothing new in about 10 or 12 years. ...
