Sensible World of Soccer? You haven't included SWOS!!

Come on people! Every football fan I knew had that game.

Great list though!

Well remembere, I had completely forgotten about them. Not sure gods was that great but speedball 2 well deserves a mention.

Xenon 2 had a great soundtrack.

I think Motorstorm would have been in my list...all the way from Runcorn, Cheshire....

Surely football manager (or championship manager before) deserves to be there.

I had Elite on tape for the BBC, it took ages to load. Simply brilliant game.

Magic Pockets, bought the Bitmaps collection a good few years ago, I should dig out the CD and see if it still works under windows 7. I'm gutted that I lent my DK Gold CD to one of my mates when I was in Uni, never did get it back.

Try EvE Online, it's the same as Elite but a lot prettyer.
Everyone plays on the same server in the same universe 35,000+ players at anyone time
Epic game

Unquestionably, Elite wins.
So far ahead of its time.

How awesome was it when you finally got those Military lasers eh?

Along with these video games, you forgot bad mitten and ping pong and other games that do not require upper body strength :D Merry Christmas !

GoldenEye was my first multiplayer experience and probably first addiction. I played it at a game center back in '99 with a bunch of friends. I still remember how I managed to get all cheat unlocks and all time records... well, for the most part anyway. :p Those damn N64 controllers got me a blister on my thumb. :\
Gunsmith 7th April 2010, 15:35 Quote
i always looked at people with a raised eyebrow when they used to tell me goldeneye was the best thing since sliced bread as I was playing quake and unreal long before.

i suppose you could say it was like comparing halo to half life back in the day.

Reading this has given me the drive to restart looking for jobs in the industry I have my qualification in, since I was getting sick of being totally ignored by companies who were all like "WORKED ON AT LEAST 1 AAA TITLE, IF YOU HAVEN'T DON'T BOTHER APPLYING"

Sensible software and Sports Interactive as stated earlier must get a mention somewhere.

Elite has to go down as my favorite game of the past. I wasted (sorry usefully used up) many hours playing this.

I still play it on my pc (Elite - Newkind) which was released by Christian Pindar - Download from here

It's fantastic to still be able to play it, I have to change to wire mode though. Just dosn't look right with the graphics as solids.

Boo, you linked to a crappy jet set willy remake! Play the original here: http://zxspectrum.net/

might need to find it in the list as I can't seem to get a direct link. It'll be listed under 1984
Tricky2050 7th April 2010, 16:37 Quote
Great list but as much as I love dungeon keeper, Theme Hospital is one of my all time favourites. Still play it now. Also Startopia was one of my favourite british games aswell.

Go wash your mouth out! Elite != EvE Online (aka Spreadsheets in Space). While you did upgrade your equipment the only skills involved were your own, please leave all dice rolls at the door 'cos we ain't using random numbers here! When I were a lad we flew using self built analogue joysticks (several visits to Tandy, a soldering iron, lots of sweat and burns - it wasn't pretty but it worked), none of this point and click mullarkey! :p

I was likewise playing Quake and Unreal but didn't even have a dial up connection, let alone anything fast enough to game on. It was a very rare occasion when I played against anything other than AI until the N64 and Goldeneye. The Friday Night Frag Fest wouldn't have been the same without this game (and beer, of course!) and it taught many of my friends a valuable lesson regarding prox mines - check the ceiling too
