    Cheeky git ! :p

    I very much followed a Commodore route so was not so familiar with the others. There were a couple of either/ors but I seemed to jump the wrong way (like Apple I or II).

    I got 7, I couldn't remember if it was an Atari Jaguar or Saturn.

    My mate had a Neo Geo, the games were a couple of hundred quid, he only one :biggrin

    Wasn't NeoGeo basically arcade machine internals repackaged in a console box so it had all the arcade titles ?

    I only got 7, got all the old ones due to being a bit of a computer history nut, missed the IBM 'laptop', eMac and SegaSaturn...

    Never was a mac fanboy or console gamer, thats my excuse and i'm sticking to it ! :D

    Yep, some SNK arcade machines had a slot where you could put the cartridge into and carry on playing from where you had saved, but you still had to pay to use the arcade machine. So slightly pointless invention there.

    7 out of 10

    Can't complain really, things like the very first one I would have never got, and messed up on the portable.

    6/10 for me. Wished I wasn't so hasty to click on some of them, was cursing myself afterwards! That said, the first one I had heard about but didn't know the name of it because I am not 8704 years old. Didn't they make a kind of 'Asteroids' style game on it or something?

    RE: Neo Geo. I remember wanting one when I had a SNES. Then the Neo Geo CD came out which was awesome, then the NEC PC-FX which was very cool! Wished I could have had them all but damn the Neo Geo (as previously mentioned) had pricey games.

    I got Street Fighter II Turbo for the SNES on Japanese import for Christmas about 75 years before it was released in the UK and that was about 90 pounds back then, a one off purchase which I can't believe I received due to the price! Yet a Neo Geo game was around 700 million pounds plus VAT, import duty, gloating insurance etc. It's amazing they even sold one console let alone the fact it kept going until 2004!

    I suppose it done much better than Nintendo's Virtual Boy anyway... :biggrin


    edit: According to Wikipedia, this game on the Neo Geo can fetch upwards of $12,500!
