That was addictive on the mega drive. May as well keep on the topic of mega drive.

Yeah, the good old Vic20. The poor mans Commodore 16 (was it called that?). Then we upgraded to the C64, then Amiga 2000.

Remember those cartridges for the Vic20? Text based adventure games.

Remember when table top games hit us, asteroids, space invaders etc.

Ghostbusters for the C64. My cousin and I thought the whole world had changed that day!
