I started programming back in 1982, so there has been a long procession of computer platforms and games over the years. From the Sinclair ZX81, MIcrobee and Apple II through to the Amiga 500/2000, t

I just finished playing through Far Cry 3 again.

  Got hit with the bug when I was 5 and dad brought home a NES, it's mostly replaced  watching TV for me (A healthy exchange I think) and made some amazing friends all over the world from it. The N64 was an earth shattering moment as a kid, playing with your mates and it not being some weird side scrolling thing, 3D world's etc it's crazy to think back to what's normal now but back then was mind blowing

Was Xbox and 360 but switched to the dark/light side after the launch debacle of the X1 so it's PS4 now. Mostly shooters and RPGs. 

  I still look back fondly on Duck Hunt!

Atari 2600-->Spectrum 48k-->Spectrum 128k-->NES-->Amiga A1200-->PS1-->XBOX-->PS4

Get less and less time these days but I try to jump on when I can. It shows I'm getting old where I can't last more than a minute in any online games, so I play the campains mainly or hide and snipe in things like BF4. Even the campaigns are getting hard. I might have to succumb to the ultimate insult...playing on "easy".

Wife bought me Ace Combat 7 for my birthday! I'm struggling on mission 6 already.

Yes.  I remember playing Shadow of the Beast and The Duel: Test Drive II.  ?  SOTB music still haunts my dreams.

I wrote my first line of C in SAS/C on a NewTek Video Toaster branded Amiga 2000.

This brings back memories! I still remember Shadow of the Beast and Barbarian on the Amiga! All of the Psygnosis games for the Amiga were over-the-top hard!

I mostly play the Xbox (fortnite, APEX legends, random games) I play my children's switch with them (just dance, Pokemon, Mario Kart, Mario party) I also play the myVegas apps as they let you acrue points for free and redeem for free rewards. Got 10% off of my last cruise just for playing.

Anyway, feel free to add me to Xbox live.

But for me, it all started here in the 8-bit world. This is not my first MIcrobee, I have owned two in the past back in the 80's and early 90's. This machine is a fairly recent acquisition. 35 years old, lovingly restored and in perfect working order, playing Asteroids right now!IMG_0079.thumb.jpeg.e86565f5cb14e0255c013f9bf791f178.jpeg

That's brilliant!!!  ?

I played various consoles growing up, but really only owned 2; an atari and sega genesis.  I've mostly been a pc gamer over the last 2 decades.  I really used to be into the mmorpg's, starting with Everquest, aptly coined Evercrack.  After that, I played WoW hardcore for a number of years.  Then, I finally had to grow up and do other things, like work.  I play quick first-person shooters mostly now, my game of choice being CS:GO at the moment.   Who knows what's next....

I started to play World of Warcraft recently (I couldn't resist a special offer for the release of BfA). I must be the oldest player worldwide ? which may explain why I find this community of players a bit …strange, and sometimes even downright unpleasant…

I'm mostly a retro gamer, mainly NES SNES, and N64 which is what I grew up on. Just finished editing the old Tecmo Super Bowl rom for the NES. Made a Hollywood Tecmo Bowl game that features some of the most iconic names in sports movie/TV show history. 

Here is just a few teams that I've featured in the rom:

Miami Sharks (Any Given Sunday)

The Mean Machine (The Longest Yard)

TC Williams Titans (Remember the Titans)

Permian Panthers (Friday Night Lights)

West Canaan Coyotes (Varsity Blues)

SCLSU Mud Dogs (The Waterboy)

Washington Sentinels (The Replacements)

The Little Giants (Little Giants) and many more..

 

Some of the players: Willie Beamen, Bobby Boucher, Boobie Miles, Paul Crewe, Gary Bertier, Shane Falco, Icebox, AC Slater, etc...

 

Here is some pics of my newest edition that I haven't officially released yet: Hollywood Tecmo Bowl II
