Strangely enought it was the SNES when it came out. I played starwing and decided to sell it to buy a megadrive.

Hey, I was 12 years old. And an idiot.

Any budding artists out there ?

Don't know if anyone saw the story the other day but Microsoft are going to be releasing a new developer tool for amateur game makers at the end of the month, which just happens to use the same programming language that I use to build websites on a daily basis :) So i'm thinking of building a few ga...

That's the point though, it's not just my opinion. Pac-man on XBLA IGN - 65% Games Radar - 50% Gamespot - 63% According to metacritic, average review scores for frogger was 66% and Galaga was 67% I have a feeling that even on a retro gaming forum like this those games wouldn't get a great deal of su...

But they're not pants! That's why they're on XBLA No, they're on XBLA because people remember them being really good. Then they play them and realise that they're actually not.

I love both new and retro games and find that there are good and bad sides to the way the industry is going. Graphics don't make a game, gameplay does. However, technically it's possible to do things now that weren't possible before and nobody can deny that there have been great new ideas and advanc...

Re:

How about the original, EVERY crappy remake and all the offshoots of, PONG There is nothing about that game that is entertaining for more than 30 seconds. Fair enough it is very very historical cause it was more or less the first home computer game but it just sucks these days. You should try Rocks...
