The topic on game music really got me thinking about the golden days of gameing. As the then proud owner of a Commodore Amiga I enjoyed amaizing sound and graphics for the time!

I also owned a Sega Megadrive/Genesis and a Super Nintendo - both great machines.

I would like hear more about GMC'ers first computers/games systems, your fave games etc biggrin.gif

I love the classic 8-bit Nintendo (NES). I never had it when I was a kid, but several of my friends did. I picked it up (along with quite a huge bundle of games) some 6-7 years ago, and I still love it! smile.gif
(though I don't really play that much anymore... hm... perhaps tonight would be a nice night for a game or two of ice hockey or north & south? smile.gif )

The Amiga was awsome. There is still a dedicated following in europe, i think especially so in Germany!

Here is a great site i found the other day http://www.lemonamiga.com/

First computer I used - wasn't mine though, belonged to work - was a Commodore Pet. Used to take about 20 mins to boot up. So we'd start it, go make a coffee, drink the coffee come back and find it had crashed. Not much different to Vista laugh.gif .

First computer I had was a Sinclair Spectrum and fav game was Attic Attack.

Cheers,
Tony

I have always loved the Megadrive... mostly because of sonic and the fact I made about 200 bucks off trading megadrives and megadrive games back when I was in primary school.

Nintendo Entertainment System

Oh maaaan, I have alot of great times with that thing when I was a kid. My cousin actually still has it, and it works! I tried it not long ago.
My favorite game was of course Super Mario Bros 3! Excellent game.

What about Nintendo 64? It was awesome IMO. Especially the James Bond stuff - where you could play it up to 4 players multiplayer biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Thought so! But anyway - if you look at it like cartridge vs. CD/DVD age than it can work as retro platform biggrin.gif

Yeah N64 was great, but I never had one sad.gif
But I played very much with my cousin and friends. Mario64 was pretty cool, Mario Kart also and much more smile.gif
