Re: What did you prefer: cassettes or 5¼" floppies?

Re: From The Forum issue 183 - Tetris: Best puzzler ever?

It's a tough call between Tetris on the Game Boy or Columns on the Mega Drive. Spent countless hours playing both.

Re: Which arcade game were you best at

Good question!

At the time the three I probably spent the most time and money on and therefore got to be the best at would be WWF WrestleFest, The Simpsons and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Re: From The Forum 182: What's your favourite Mega Drive game

How do you pick just one? Almost all of them hold a special place for me, but the first one I ever played was Golden Axe so I may pick that one if forced.

It used to be Street Fighter II for the SNES, until I discovered the Special Championship Edition on the Mega Drive!

Re: PS3 Help - YLOD!! :-(
