was my personal golden era of gaming

duarteq4060d ago

Mine too. games like Agony, Shadow of the Beast, Mega-lo-Mania. Those were good old times. We knew about gaming. and had nothing to do with graphics, it was only pure fun.

It figures way today's reviews are so comercial and market share...

Same here too. I still have my old Amiga 1024 with 100's of games, and it still works.

Games like Shadow of the Beast, Flashback, Mutant Football, Speedball, Xenon 2, First Samurai, Second Samurai, Lemmings, Lotus Challenge, Jaguar XJ220, Monkey Island (where you had 15 discs and had to keep changing them!!), Leisure Suit Larry, Chaos Engine, Alien Breed, Full Contact plus loads loads more!

They were the days of Psygnosis, Team 17, Titus etc..small teams that have somehow lost there way or disappeared!

What did happen to Psygnosis??

Me too! Super Cars, The Chaos Engine, Escape from Colditz (ace!) etc.

If they had some brains they would bring their games to XBL instead!

the voices in mega-lo-mania were so funny! but yea, great era of gaming, populous, supremacy, kick off etc. from what I remember though, Shadow of the beast was all about graphics!

I had an Amiga and an Atari ST/TT... talk about fanboy wars... use to love the demos that would show off the capabilities of those machines.

it makes the 360/Wii/Ps3 flamewars look tame as in those days it was mainly face to face!
