Christmas pics

Post by Darran@Retro Gamer » Tue Oct 30, 2007 8:01 am

Come on guys, some of you must have photos when you were opening up your new computers and games on Christmas day.

If I can dress up as Mario, you can show us your pics from yesteryear to use in the mag.

Surpsingly I never obtained any computer or console for Xmas, or other holidays. I paid for my Spectrum with the interitance of my late gran. Should I post some photos of the funeral ? :lol:

We were a humble family making do on a working class wage. We couldn't afford the luxury of a camera! The only piccies of my childhood are on days out to Chester Zoo and the likes.

How about the RG team do their own 'reconstructions' of our christmas memories :D

There was one of me from around that time playing Galaxy Twinvader, though its not a christmassy pic particularly. Might have something in the background but no opening shots.

Next you'll be suggesting a (premium rate) phone in where readers can name the new Retro Gamer cat :)

Apologies for the quality on these but they are pictures of pictures and technically they aren't opening presents either.

Here's me gawping at my cousins 64 and probably thinking "why didn't they get a spectrum"

Image

Here's me playing my new Game & Watch game, Hero And Princess, whilst my grandad in the background is no doubt searching for some booze.

And here it is all these years later, I don't think it works anymore though.

Somewhere, I have a picture of me unwrapping an Amiga A500+ that I got for crimbo - I'll see if I can find it, I'm sure it's about somewhere :D
