    Favourite old-school computer games

    I'm showing my age if I start with Space Invaders but a couple of others over the years bring back good memories.

    DOOM - Still remember playing a 16-man tournament in 1995 after work which we thought was cutting edge technology. We only stopped at 11pm when we realised what the time was and we had trains to get home.

    X-WING - Blowing up the Death Star at 2.40am in the morning was something a bit special.

    FRONT PAGE SPORTS FOOTBALL - the first really great NFL game with play designing options.

    Day of the Tentacle, Tie Fighter and Streets of Rage 2 would be my top three most days of the week.
    2015 = Worst golf season in memory - End handicap 15.2 - now with added 1.0 after review = 16.2

    Jet Set Willy for me. My son and I spent countless hours drawing up a map of the connections from room to room and how to get through a room to the next one.

    Re: Favourite old-school computer games

    I suppose old school is relative but to me it means these:

    Elite - A space game on Spectrum/Amiga which was just lines to represent your spacecraft and dots for stars.
    Transarctica - Set in a nuclear frozen wasteland, the sky covered. Exploring and defending from attack in armoured trains!
    B17 Flying Fortress - WW2 flight / war sim.
    Syndicate - Sort of gang game with a sci-fi twist.
    The original SimCity and ThemePark games.
    Getting a bit more modern - 688 Attack Sub and Desert Strike, oh and the original NHL games on mega drive!

    I haven't had a console for easily over 10 years now. When I go round and see my nephews playing their new ones I have no clue how they know what on the screen is interactive or not. When I played the graphics were so bad something that was interactive would have a thick line around it or something. Now they are so photo-realistic it's scary!

    Dark Side (1988)
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    Job done
