Why he is the spawn :twisted: of Stock, Aitken & Waterman?? These three ruined the music industry from 1987-1990! Also, could this be the worst video ever from the same guys! Don't see it if you are of a nervous disposition!! You have been warned :shock: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=7vNsDhFaKUk

Wow, i didnt expect this kind of response. Every time i look at this list i get more miffed - i mean, Transformers rated higher than Goonies/Predator/Night of the living dead/Robocop/Lethal Weapon.

I usually find with lists like these that the majority of the general public are morons (no one who reads retrogamer or contributing to this forum obviously!) because they have memories of a goldfish and can only remember what they saw last week or what is currently in vogue! So they only vote curre...

It had issues with the controller so I never got to play it - i.e the most obvious being that you can't play it just with a keyboard as essential keys are missing. Read the review at IGN.com to see what I mean. And it's only config for the Xbox360 Control...

Abba!! Actually, what is quite ironic everyone was embarresed about Abba in the late 80's early 90's. My brother even bought the new best of Abba for 2 quid on vinyl - in other words they were relegated to the bargain bin in Woolworths! Even untrendy but thinks he is Alan Partridge thought they were...

Weren't the stars of Little Britain on a show with Bob Mills called Games World during the early days of SKY TV??

Isnt it one of the Bond rules that the chosen band only ever get one crack at the theme? Maybe, but that didn't stop Shirley Bassey doing Goldfinger and Licence To Kill... B.
