What was your best game?

when you were young, what was your best game? You know, the one you would ever lend anyone. For me it was this. Cant beat vagina sharks.

I have never heard of Space Gun.

My favorite game was this (on the ZX Spectrum):


I also spent many hours on The Lords Of Midnight, Football Manager and Bomb Jack.

My favourite game as a young'un was Psycho Fox for the Sega Master System.

Honourable mentions: Rastan, and Actraiser - also Master System.

Cheers

I remember the cover to Psycho Fox. Never got to play it though. My mum probably didn't want me playing a game with the word Psycho in the title. Fair enough I suppose. Haven't gone to jail yet.

Odd that it says 'One to two players' instead of 'One or two players'

Tomb Raiders 1-3 and the Command and Conquer games for the PS1 and the Grand Theft Autos on PS2 ate up a shocking amount of my free time.  At one point I was let go from a job and my first thought was "great, I'll get to play more San Andreas."

I vaguely recall the ZX Speccy and 8-16 bit stuff like Mad Max and Story of Thor, but revisiting them via emulation sites wasn't a great idea.

Checked my copy of the game and it's as I thought, you take turns in playing.  :)

If the Nintendo Switch doesn't do it for you, the next iteration of ZX machines, the ZX Spectrum Next, is out tomorrow.  Has a whopping 5MB of RAM, apparently, but more importantly supports all original Spectrum peripherals and games, and comes with HDMI output so you can enjoy all 256 colours and both sound channels on a HDTV and no I don't even know if I'm joking anymore but THIS IS A REAL THING THAT IS HAPPENING.

Nintendo could learn a few things from that. Why do I feel I need one so badly? Damn you nostalgia!
