You know divorces can be quite easy and inexpensive? ;)

Mrs Ant knew what she was getting before the big day, so the games remain.

Mushroom (not gaming related. Hair tragedy in the 90's related) 25. Just got out of the Air Force last year. Aircraft engineer (lucky enough to fly AND crash multi-million dollar raytheon flight simulator. Best video game EVER!)

I play NES, SNES, N64, GC, Revolution (boycotting the name Wii), Master system, Mega Drive/Genesis, Sega CD/Mega CD, 32X, Dreamcast, Saturn, PSX/1/2, Xbox, All Nintendo hand helds (except virtual boy. Who needs seizures?) and Game gear for good measure. Trying to get into 3DO and CDi at the moment, too. Any advice on those two would be most welcome.

Hi all

Im Mark im 29, married with one child (boy) and another on the way (boy again) I work as a Chemist and live in the northwest of England in sunny Morecambe.

Ive been gaming for many years and Ive pretty much owned every console imaginable at some point. My 1st contact with games came in the form of a computer called Dragon 32 then Spectrum 48k and C64 etc etc the list goes up through the generations of computers/consoles to what I have now the XBox360, my gamertag is (mrBeatz) of course.

I also still own and play on a few of the older machines, my son who is 3 and half is being weened into gaming using these machines 1st. He enjoys them a lot and I get great pleasure in watching my son enjoy a 30 year old game from Atari.

Atari 2600

Im not a fanboy of any partucular brand I just like playing and collecting games and consoles.

Im also a member of the Gamestm forum and have been browsing yours for a few weeks now and it seems very similar to Gamestm. Friendly and mature.

yeah, the golden 80s/early nineties for me... my old man was lucky enough to buy me an acorn (which i barely remember) , a spectrum (128k +2a), atari st then off to PC. Consoles... I've bought (or previously owned) an N64, dreamcast, atari jaguar, gamboy, gameboy advance and now own a DS.

now i use lots of emulators and dig all the old nintendo classics. and neo geo stuff.

I used to go to the arcades a lot too. golden axe, shadow dancer et al.

My name's Dave, I live in Edinburgh and I work in Blockbuster Games and freelance for the video game section of culture mag The Skinny. We're a new mag and getting pretty big so fingers crossed I can make a full time job of it one day :)

I also enjoy hardcore bands, playing bass in a band, I started collecting mega drive games and peripherals about 2 years ago but have always been an avid fan of the format. I enjoy cider a bit too much also :P

Hi everyone :)
