I’ve been feeling nostalgic of late. Perhaps it was discovering my Megadrive (the first console I ever owned) in a cupboard and running through Green Hill Zone once again. Whatever brought it on it’s no doubt been exacerbated by my Christmas present: 1001 Games to Play Before You Die. I admit, there seems to have been a tome of this type forced out in the last few years for every hobby known to man, from classic albums to knitting designs. This particular template seemed to fit video games better than most though, probably because so few comprehensive lists exist unlike in the worlds of film and music. Also with Edge editor-in-chief Tony Mott’s name attached to the enterprise it was clear it was going to be an interesting selection.
