PostSubject: My Gaming History...   Tue 16 Oct 2012, 10:05

My interest in gaming started when my parents got me one of these for Christmas as a kid...


It came with a cartridge with several games, such as basketball, tennis etc, but what made it for me was the fact that it came with a realistic gun controller. It started out as a pistol, but came with a screw-on butt and barrel, to transform itself into a rifle. The only trouple was, the shooting games were so sensitive to light, you could only play them with the curtains drawn Very Happy

I was a bit jealous of my mates at school at the time, as they all had Atari or Intellivision consoles...

I eventually persuaded my folks to get me one of these bad boys, the BBC Micro Model B...


I would spend many a happy hour on this after school playing these:

Elite


JCB Digger


Repton


Next came the Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum, with such faves as these...


Summer Games


Way Of The Exploding Fist


Pitstop II


Commando


My next purchase was the Commodore Amiga 500


It even had a mouse and games came on 3.5" discs, instead of cassette tapes. My faves on the Amiga were

Speedball II


Xenon II


Kick Off 2


Then I got a Sega Megadrive, whicvh I think I bought off a friend, for about £50. It was a Japanese version that came with Sonic The Hedgehog, but played games from all regions.


Desert Strike


Road Rash


Streets Of Rage


After the Megadrive came the original Playstation, which I bought on release day, for around £300 Shocked


Among my faves on the PS1 were:

Destruction Derby


Tekken 2


Tomb Raider


International Superstar Soccer Pro


Around the same time, I got myself an N64...


Spent most of the time on these:

Mario Kart 64


Star Wars: Rogue Squadron


Goldeneye


The last system I had before my 360 was the PS2


The games I loved on the PS2 were

GTA III


Timesplitters 2


Need For Speed Underground



If you don't remember half of these, don't worry - it just means you're not an old fart as me Embarassed

I had a space invaders one like that. I remember it ate batteries.
