I'm afraid i'm an 80's retro gamer Martin.


 


Grew up in the 80's and was heavily into the arcade classics of the day.


ie Galaga, Gyrus, Wonderboy, Time Pilot, Zaxxon, Zain d'Sleena, Arkanoid, Pacman, to name but a few.


 


Just reacquainted myself with another 80's classic on my iPhone : R type. Pure shoot em up classic nostalgia. Brings it all back.


 


My son has an Xbox one, but most of the stuff he plays is lost on me.


I did play a bit of the latest Lara Croft version on there. That was good.


Also have Tomb Raider Underworld on my iMac, but i'm not a big gamer these days.


Maybe i just like the Lara Croft character. All women should be like her lol  :lol:

I've been quite a big gamer for a long time, and worked at Rare (just down the road) for ten years making X360 games. Although these days I'm mainly on PC.


 


Fallout 4 looks great, I loved 3 but can't really justify the time to play it at the moment so I think I'll have to skip it (for a while at least, I'm sure I'll succumb sooner or later!).


 


I will though quickly recommend Kerbal Space Program (on PC now, PS4 soon-ish). Completely different but awesome. Build rockets and probes and explore the solar system with fairly realistic physics. I wrote some stuff about it here if you're interested.

I'm out of date here with an xbox 360. Got it purely to play the zombies on call of duty's world at war zombies after being Introduced' to them by a nephew, then black ops zombies... Also Played all the forza games.

Its not been switched on for some months tho, kinda hoping for ps4 one day...

Used to play a multiplayer online game on pc for a year or so some while back.

You will enjoy AVGN on YouTube then?

I remember R-type back on Atari, which was one of my first consoles. I was born in the eighties so real gaming for me was mega-drive, N64 then ps one era.

The game I play the most is probably Quake 3 Arena.


I Have a Nintendo Wii which I just use for Super Mario 64 which I think is one of the best games ever written.


 


I also really like all of the old arcade games like Space Invaders, Phoenix, Pacman, Frogger, Moon Crest, Tron, Galaxians, Galaga e.t.c.


Here' s what I have in my Dining Room  :D

I remember the old binatone tennis game.

I still have my old ZX81 somewhere must dig it out and see if it still works. I remember playing a game where a dinosaur made up of ASCII characters chased you round a 3D maze and spending hours typing in programs from magazines that never worked :)

Yeah my parents had a Binatone tennis thing. The height of technology until they bought me a 48k Spectrum when I was 7 (then I got the programming bug and never looked back).

I liked Asteroids, with that little triangle doofus whizzing round shooting things with unlimited shots.
