Nice one. I like it.
Thought the top 10 was a bit pointless though as cartoon games like bomberman will never be classified as violent, so to have them next to Mortal Kombat et al was odd.

Bomberman was in there I think for the explosions & its name includes "Bomb", back in 95 just about all games were deemed nasty by politicians.

Found the video tape in a big box of Amiga games, game of street fighter 1 anyone? :)

just watched your screenshots may vary one. Pity the Lulu prices are so extortionate as I would have loved a copy of that.

Yep, price is really high. £49.99 for the full edition, theres a "Best Of" version for £13.99 that includes 60 games taken from the full edition.
Working on a £7.99 version, will include 280 games (3 screens a game). This is a Landscape format with 8 games per page.
