I have a 5.71 second time in Activision's Dragster. I only have an attention span of 6 seconds so it's the perfect game for me
I was useless at that game.
i am pretty good at Paradroid and Paradroid90 - obsesivly good to the point i annoy myself
But i learnt last weekend in stoke i am not much good when the cameras are on me - feel really self -conscious and start going all red

I used to be unfathomably good at Kung Fu Master (for two weeks whilst on holiday in Majorca) - or I thought I was until I played on the same machine at Heathrow airport on the return journey, where I was rubbish. I didn't know about DIP switches at the time...

I wouldn't be so bold to claim I was ever an "expert" back in the '80s at any particular game but I sure did kick the beejesus out of anyone who ever dared challenge me at Match Day II

Agreed, can normally be very entertaining, just atched his ventriloquist prog the other night. Impressive when doing these programs, Ventriloquism; clowning; magician, he actually really tried his hardest to make it work and never seems to fall back into the fact it's 'just' a tv program and will air no matter how he does.
And you wonder why you're being labelled as elitist... you couldn't be any more elite if you were a wireframe.

Especially if someone from the show is using our forum for some free advertising/'recruitment'...
i'm confusued by your reply craig: you don't want retro gaming to reach a bigger audience?-surely more exposure = more potential retro gamers = better future for RG magazine? (Beside which, the poor TV researcher is only doing their job)

Well, around these parts, watching me play is called "Pay-Per-View"
Which means you put your money where your mouth is, and get to see how good I am. You have to pay to see my skills.
Not that you'd actually see much of my on-screen character in this instance lol
Actually just realised that none of the games I commented on are from the 80's. Duh!!

Is this going to be a `get Denton Designs back together` style program or get matthew Smith a clean brain so he can write jet set willy 3...or `get the ultimate team back together for Mire Mare`
He must be Dave Lee Travis` son

Bit harsh. Surely this is the perfect place for them to come when they want experts on retro.
JLC is ace too.

I wish I was, I guess I'm pretty good at Renegade on C64 and Speccy in particular.
