    Now then, I played Air Support on the old Atari 800xl for days on end. Kind of RTS long before the likes of C&C. Missile commandwas another. Railroad Tycoon 1 on ST, Amiga and my early PC. Their finest hour on the ST was another favourite, Ikari Warrior was great because I was addicted to the Arcade version in the Students Union so playing it on my ST saved loads of dosh :) ....... I could go on and on and on :D

    Raid Over Moscow, Bubble Bobble, Outrun, Green Beret, Rambo, Commando, Beach Head II, Summer Games, Winter Games and Super Scramble were my favourites on the Commodore 64 all mostly circa 1984/1985!

    Mega Apocalypse was a great 90's ish C64 game too...cool music!

    I had a look at one of the ST emulators a while back, some things are better left as a distant memory like the gem o/s :)

    Yes, in the "my computer is better than your computer" wars I stuck with the ST for years, sold out in the end though and bought an Amiga :)

    i did the same m8.i didnt sell my atari(its on my desk at the moment)but i did move on to an amiga 500 then a 1200aga
    the 1200 was a great computer with a top soundchip(just like the 64)the pc came along and blew me away though as soon as i saw wingcommander 3,although the dodgy acting put me off a bit :)

    If you ever find one that works you'll have to let me know, I've searched for many years to no prevail. The only one i found, was one that need you to plug your PC into your Amiga.

    This is no good to me as mine has been F***ed for the last 2yrs. :(


    I have over 200 games

    I need to play them...

    I need that nostalgia......

    I CAN'T TAKE IT HEEEEEEEELLLLLPPPPP MMMMEEEEEE!!!! :eek: :cry:

    Deep breath, any was yes....Ahem...if you do? could you? thank you.

    I think i saw an amiga emulator on the cover of a retro games magazine recently - it could be worth keeping an eye out if you're in the UK.
