Recently bought the Metal Gear Solid oldies and Final Fantasy X/X-2 that have been re-released in HD for PS3.

New games don't even scratch the fun of the classics.

gog.com sells quite a lot of old PC games very cheap, they've even modified a number of them so they work in Windows 7(Dungeon Keeper 2 and Theme Hospital included) without faffing about. I'm actually finding it really hard not to buy games when they are a couple of quid each and I was bad enough with steam....

I adored the first Sonic on my dad's Sega Megadrive. That game was an absolute blast. I'll have to dig the old thing out of the loft to relive the memories.

My oldest gaming memory was playing Sonic 2 on my neighbour's Mega Drive. At age 2.

My first memory of games (outside of arcades that is) was playing some traffic light game on an old Commodore Pet at my middle school. I would have been around 12 I guess so 1982ish?

 

 

 

 

God I feel old now.

I remember around 1984 Thatcher decided every school should have a computer so our primary school got a Links Machine??? I think it was called..... No one actually used it for programming apart from one of the teachers who made a pirate game that everyone in the whole school would queue up in line to play haha

Final fantasy 7 might be old but never grows old. Amazing game, my favourite tbh , waiting for them to announce a remake of it.
