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 is the only one I ever considered a true gaming platform.

Not really on topic, but close: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYvZnTFpip0

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

Hmmm fav game, yes. Forgot that.

Two games by Bitmap Brothers. "Gods" and ... can't remember the name "Hardball", "Steel balls" ... No! "Speedball 2", which is about to be a sequel soon biggrin.gif . And another Bitmap Bro, Magic Pockets.

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

A very good system the N64, but not quite old enough to be considered retro yet !!! smile.gif I did love Golden eye on that, good for parties etc

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

Agreed biggrin.gif its definatly a classic system in many's hearts. The Atari Jaguar was also a much overlook system, with titles like Alien vs Predator and the "all new" Wolfenstein 3D useing the doom engine.

Side tracking slightly; Today i dont own any games systems, but i have a very keen interest in all "retro" systems, and i think legal emulation is definatly very good fun!

Conkers Bad Fur Day on N64 was friggin hilarious

So the SNES is top of the tops at GMC - well it was a great system so i can see why smile.gif
