I'm fond of my driving licence.

It lets me drive.

The 8 and 16 bit consoles had some brilliant Disney games. My favourite was Castle of Illusion on the Master System, much better than the (admittedly lovely looking) Megadrive version. Brilliant too was the fact that they were almost completely different games, but both were great.

You may have a driving licence but have you got a licence for that badger? :wink:

My nomination for best licence goes to Lego Star Wars II.

But before I get shot down in flames for it not being retro (although both Star Wars and Lego can be considered so)

My retro game nomination has to be:

Trap Door for the C64 - At the time it really captured the feel and humour of the show.

Lego Star Wars was an absolute genious license. I really hope they do a Harry Potter one next.

(Jumping on the Dudley bandwagon)

My parents TV licence.

It let me indulge my Commodore 64 gaming pleasure in the 80's.

I've been granted a licence to kill by her majesty's government. I don't use it very often though.
Splink!

Or perhaps an Indiana Jones.

I might go as far to say it could be one of the greatest games ever.

The best bit is finding the cinema and smashing it to bits.

They used the 'Fear Factory' track 'Zero Signal' for the PC intro to Carmageddon. It really got you psyched for mowing down pedestrians - ROCK! :twisted:

On a more serious note. I always liked the game 'Hong Kong Phooey' on my Spectrum. Great cartoon, average game, but I loved it nonetheless.
