Hi all. Been a RG reader since beginning. Don't really know why I never signed up to the forum until now, but better late than never.
Started my gaming life way back with one of those Binatone TV Master thingies. Went through a few of those type of machines, and tabletop games, until I eventually upgraded to a VIC 20. Still remember opening that baby on christmas day, and playing Dracula and Tut's Tomb. Best memories are still Spiders of Mars, and Gorf (IMO the best home version of the game), and the day I eventually found a Super Expander for sale in the logal games shop. Then moved on to C64, probably the best machine ever. Too many happy memories to list them all, but even as an adult, I got excited when deliveries arrived from Shareware Plus, and Binary Zone, and of course the day my copy of Mayhem in Monsterland arrived through the door. SInce then, have had (in no particular order) Atari Jaguar, Gameboy, GBA, Sega Saturn, Dreamcast, PS1, PS2, and currently DS and Wii. Many happy memories, and hope to build a MAME cab one day, but for now will have to settle for laptop plugged into TV with Logic 3 joystick. Favourite games of all time must be (apart from those already mentioned) Galaxians, Dragons Lair, Frogger, Congo Bongo, Mappy, Wonder Boy, Bubble Bobble (all arcade), Winter Games, Leaderboard and many many more on C64. Special mention has to go to Tempest 2000 in Jaguar. Must say I'm no fan of Mario or Sonic games, especially Sonic, they just bore me. Any way, that's me so Helloooooo!
