I don't think I was playing anything as I'd given up gaming when I started my first job five or so years earlier. :|

Was the Mega drive version the only Lemmings that had that split screen multiplayer mode? I remember playing that a few times with my friends, but they always wanted to play Streets of Rage 2. Bloody peasants!
No, I was playing it on the Atari ST, me on joystick and Mrs Ant v1.0 on the mouse.

We only got the MD at the end of '92 and a couple of months later I wasn't living there any more so didn't really get the chance to play more than the two games we bought with it for the kids.

I was a very nerdy 17 year old that year - lots of pirated Amiga games in the early part, EA Hockey, Sword Of Vermilion and The Immortal on Megadrive in the mid-section of the year, and in the last couple of months, Super Ghouls N' Ghosts, Super Castlevania IV and an epic trek to Horsforth to buy Street Fighter 2 on US SNES from a localish company that advertised in the back of C&VG (then went to see Unlawful Entry at the Odeon the same afternoon!)

That and the beginnings of a major porn addiction. Porno of the year: T!t Tales 2. ;)

Actually, just discovered Uridium 2 was released in 1993 so perhaps I didn't play that one after all :shock:

I finished my first starving year of Uni, then worked all summer and went back with enough cash to be able to afford food and a colour telly for my ST. So I was busy playing R-Type II, or linking up Stunt Car Racer or Lotus Turbo Challenge II to a friend's Amiga for 2- or 4-player races.

I think this was the year that I worked the entire summer holiday to afford myself a Snes, ahh, great times! In addition to my new found Nintendo love (never really liked the NES) I would have been playing a fair bit of PC stuff round my Brother in Laws house although this may have been '93. Anyway, we were enjoying titles such as X-Wing, Premier Manager and Frontier iirc. The Megadrive would have still been getting plenty of love between bouts of SF2 and although I still had my engine it was beginning to take a back seat.

Some brilliant memories you have just stirred op. :)

Personally I was out raving having a good time, my gaming carreer was taking a back seat, still had a MD though.

Me, my brothers, our megadrive and mega games 1 &2 were all we needed. World Cup Italia 90 followed by some competitive Columns, finished off with some friendly co-op Golden Axe and Streets of Rage. The life!

Not sure. Possibily Master System as I think it was just before my brother bought a SNES. I think the CPC464 was gone by then.

1992 was the year that I was in my 'transistional' phase between the Speccy I'd remained loyal to for the last few years whilst my mates had moved onto Atari ST's and Amigas, and 16 bit consoles.

Back in 1992, I was still squeezing life out of the Speccy, it was on it's last legs so I was mainly buying whatever budget games Codemasters released (think it was Seymour, Seymour and more Seymour around that time) and the last few releases from the bigger publishers...seem to remember getting the Speccy version of Hero Quest around then and hammering it, and The Addams Family by Ocean, which hammered me. :(

Back then, the only console I had was my original Game Boy, so lots of Tetris, Super Mario Land and Gargoyle's Quest were played that year. Xmas 1992 I think was when I got a SNES if that was the first year the SNES was out? I remember going with my mum and dad into Dixons for it and picking up the Super Mario World/console package, but I had other motives, me and my mates were pretty much Street Fighter 2 mad always played the arcade version when we got a chance, and I really wanted the home version. The guy in Dixons said they were sold out and I almost could've cried, but then he said Electronics Boutique across the road had a few copies left. I remember my mum's reaction ....£65 for Street Fighter 2! :shock: But luckily they still bought it for me and I ended up playing it to death and more than got my parents' money's worth out of it. :)
