Phew , long title!
But as it says , please list games that are personal favourites , but which are obscure or not good enough to probably never warrant a place in the mag

One of my favourites was Foundations Waste on ST , a great little shooter , with some excellent music . I'd love to see a feature , but (although it has been mentioned by one or 2 other members on the forum)
is certainly not what many would class as a 'classic' , or fondly remembered , so will probably never feature in the mag

Here's hoping though!

I'd love to see a feature about Quest on the Beeb. It was a great, if fairly generic, platform adventure and one of the system's real gems.

I'd vouch for "Chariot Race" (Micro Antics) on the Vic 20... a really classy little game for two players. Fast, frantic and bloody crazy!

Tony Oakden (creator of Quest) posted here recently.

Frank is THE MAN!

What a great little game that is. Graphics are great for a game arounf that time, they actually look like chariots.

I'd like to see a 'Making Of' kinda feature about the history of the '...Format' magazines.

From Commodore Format, through ST'Amiga Format right up to PC and Linux Format.(was there a Sinclair Format?) The current editor of Linux Format used to be the editor of Amiga Format (momentarily forget his name) so there's bound to be a retro-link there.

I imagine publishing rivalries and pettyness would get in the way?

There was no "Sinclair", the only one you missed was Mac Format.

Unirally/Uniracers for t'SNES. Not that much you can say about it though except "this is f**king awesome".
