Smurfs - for obvious reasons. :lol: Actually, I think I preferred Moon Patrol. The coolest game in the world when I was 4. :lol:

Combat, followed me through my history of gaming. Lots of Amiga Shareware games around this theme, and now the tanks game on wiiplay.. Killing each other in a maze might be the very essence of gaming..

Star Raiders

With a keypad in one hand and a joystick in the other , it was as immersive as a 8k game could be

River Raid or Parker Bros' Spider Man

Can't make my mind up between those two. Both superb.

Ok, a convuluted answer, but...E.T.

I remember in the early eighties doing a 'swapsie' with a schoolmate. He had my Vectrex for a week and I had his Atari 2600. The games he provided with it was River Raid, Space Invaders and E.T.

I enjoyed E.T. Yes I did. I had recently been taking to the cinema to watch it and although embarressed by the tears my mother and sister shed over the film, I did enjoy it, so to be able to play 'the game of the film' was very exciting to my 13 year old brain.

I never owned an Atari 2600 myself and this was my only (brief) exposure to that console, so I hope you will forgive me for decalring E.T as my favourite game of that era... :D

River Raid, which is as addicting today as it was when I first saw it. Not dated at all.

I have a friend at work who said they played River Raid in the '80s for hours on end and they'd really love to play it again, unfortunately they have neither the cartridge nor the console to play it on. Hmm, maybe if I'm kind enough for Christmas...

I have a colleague who was asking where to get a Mega Drive from as she wanted to play Sonic again. She has it for DS but says its not the same and won't buy a Wii or 360.

One forum post and a download later, she's all set up with Kega Fusion.
