I will answer your questions in order....
Woody * When DJing I play breaks-tech-house-dnb-punk-rock-noise....honest....although cheese-trance sounds mighty interesting. Cheese & Trance....are they not the same thing? (heehee)
markopoloman * I have to answer C64 because I'm easily pleased with nice graphics and sound.

It's a strange combination ... but if done right, it sounds cool!

Well, Good choice - you have passed the test and may now partake in some forum banter with the rest of the members :roll: :wink:

The C64 was of course the only correct answer to the question :D :lol:

Ah, well as we're all getting to know each other, I thought I better sign up and join the crowd.

It's Gary from Norwich Retro Gamers.

Probably one of the oldest 'retro' guys around here... 37.. :roll:

I've been gaming since 1980, after moving to a little seaside village in Norfolk and being seduced by Astro Blaster in the local arcade. Parents bought us a Voltmace Database console. Upgraded (??) to an Aquarius, then got serious and bought an Atari 800XL (my favourite 8bit computer).

Worked in retail back in the mid-80's... One Step Beyond in Norwich (or Brainwave as I can remember it). And never really looked back.

I have a pretty decent collection from stuff like the ZX80 and Pet, through the 8bit and 16bit computers and consoles, and I stop at the Amiga 1200 and 3DO.

It's a passion, obession, and as many of you know, lots of fun.

The website is a sort of voyage of discovery for us Norwich gamers and I try and keep it updated. There is an article on the recent Game On exhibition which some of you might find interesting... check out www.retrogamers.org/article10.html

Yes, I'm stuck in the 80's... like the music, the films, and the games.. but i do escape to the real world to make a living unfortunately. :(

Regards,
Gary.

how do you figure that? I could almost guarantee there'd be wires inside it if I smashed one open with a hammer.

Crikey, I forgot to introduce myself! :shock:

I'm a programmer living in Kent and my first experiance with a computer was when my older brother got a ZX Spectrum 48K+ for Chrimbo...I think back in 1985? Yup, Learn-to-Read 4 was where it all began for me... :D

Nowadays I'm programming in C,C++ and Java, and have made a few games. My best one to date is a Forgotten Worlds-style shumup.

Trying to get into the games industry at the moment(not easy I can tell you!), but always working on that next game( Phantasy Star article in RG has me inspired!)...
