Minesweeper on Windows 3.1 F.T.W!

 

I love the old original playstation games ,.. Hogs of War and Olympic Soccer (Before FIFA exisited) were my 2 favorite to play.

I still have and play original pokemon on my phone and play almost daily .. (rick rolling lvl 2 Pidgey and Rattata with my 90 something Charizard) DEAL WITH IT!

 

Space Invaders, Pacman, Sonic all amazing timeless games...

 

Anyone remember Dick Tracy for the Mega Drive .. endless hours of fun!

first computer ZX81 1kb base mem but did upgrade to wobbly 16kb ram pack

eventually got ZX80 whilst awaiting speccy delivery - jeez what a long wait

years later got microdrives & QL etc.....

 

Sadly flogged all my stuff when fell on harder times :(

 

first video game - before Atari VCS 2600 there was numerous Video games

way way overpriced to play tennis & basic shooting the big square dot on screen

some systems you could buy/build from places like Maplin before they hit the high street

 

The say the first so called arcade video game was by atari - breakout

and it was said they had to repair it in less than 24hrs of installing it

the coin box mechanism broke as it just couldn't handle the amount of cash

 

rest is history and I'm way too old for this $hit

I grew up with all them games. My first game on the original ps was the first resident evil. I used the love the beginning of the game; they used real actors! It was so cheesy

 

Final fantasy 7 & 9 were always a favourite.

jeez that must be worth a few bob to a nintendo or turtle collector

 

usa or jap coz uk don't get many good limited editions over here

often old cartridge consoles had different ends on carts so you either bought adapter

to run usa megadrive/genesis carts on UK consoles or took front of cartridge off

 

Ahh the good old days, plus good old consoles that don't need great big fans running

like crazy trying to prevent RROD or YLOD or BSOD like today's consoles
