This wouldn't be so bad if there were some delineation between one title and the next, but at the moment they all sort of run together.
Centre justifying the text doesn't help.
A lot of work to do all those reviews! I read the Power Drive Rally review in detail! Its fairly descriptive! But the use of exclamation marks is excessive!
You've probably enough room for a couple of screenshots next to the text. The single one looks a bit lonely.
Dig Dug - By Atari
I think it’s always been well established that Dig Dug contains one of the weirdest plots and concepts of any game in history. But I also think that its pure quirkiness is part of what made the original Namco arcade game such a massive hit. I mean you are a little man who runs around under ground with a giant air pump blowing up dragons and big bloopy things, dodging falling boulders and collecting the magic fruit that grows down there, makes perfect sense doesn't it? Well this strange mix of Boulderdash, Pacman and erm some game where you blow air is just as good on the 7800 as it was in the arcades. There are difficulty levels, a 2-player mode and all the original levels here which combined with the colourful graphics and decent sound make this one of my favourite 7800 games. For me Dig Dug still holds just as much nostalgia for me as games like Pacman, Space Invaders and Asteroids. It also still holds up just as well today too in the gameplay department and is tremendous fun. So what you waiting for? A new magic air pump to arrive?.

While people have their favourites, not all those games are suitable for events - so perhaps to make this a bit different and unique, perhaps marking games suitable for playing at events would be a good idea - and would help me out with creating lists or choosing games on systems - as well as perhaps finding some hidden gems that I never knew existed.
Perhaps also adding some categories such as "Puzzle", "Driving", "Shooter", "Platform", "2 Player" would be helpful to give a quick indication as to what kind of game it is.
Would also be cool (and add some interaction) if people could write their own comments for each review, or perhaps even own mini review as not everyone may have the same opinion as the person who originally reviewed the game.
StarshipUK wrote:Whether multicarts or originals it would still be useful to know of games which are suitable for events - I sometimes look at your massive collection of Jag games and don't have a clue what to play. The same would happen if I took along a full set of originals for the systems I own..
