I just returned to gaming heaven and beat all the core Super Mario Brothers games in order (SMB, SMB2, SMB3, SMW, SM64, SMS and NSMB). I even had delusions of gradior and trying the "lost" Japanese SMB 2. Screw that - I am to old for that kind of suffering! lol.

Only GamesMaster had the joysticks now ;)

I meant the series in question isn't online in the usual spots yet, only 1 and 2 I think, and maybe 6.

I was also on GamesWorld too though less successful at the time, I got stiffed out on Pilotwings (the other two guys I was up against were ninja at it).

There's a lot more than that on the go. Iirc theres around the first 4 series on the go and a few random eps. You may not be as safe as you think. Tbh I fast forward through most of Gamesmaster, most of the challenges are really dull to watch.

I would have a moment if I could finally beat Wonder Boy in Monster Land on the Master System. I have gotten close so many times but always die in the maze, or have so little health by the time I get to the Meka-Dragon that he completely obliterates me.

But this weekend, I can feel it... :twisted:

Completing Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis on the A500 with 1 drive and 11 disks. I spent more time watching the game load than I did playing it.

Winning the European Cup on SWOS 96/97 using HB (Faroe Islands team) in my second season of one particular career. I beat Real Madrid 4-3 and I think my best player at that time was only worth 350K, where as Real Madrid were FULL of multi-million pound valued players... The key was finding a striker whose rating was SFV (speed, finishing and shot power in that order) and a 3-5-2 formation...

I once talked a female French exchange student into playing strip "Simon says" (anyone remember the MB game?) - does that count for anything? I was pretty proud of myself at the time. ...and the memories have lasted a lifetime...

She sits in the corner of a padded cell completely naked humming the "Simon says" tune you used to get at the end of each level to herself....

I don't have a proudest gaming moment. I am rightly ashamed of my gaming skillz.
