    Looks brilliant - can't wait to play manic miner on the old rubber keys!!

    These things are always best left in your memories as when you go back it's never the same.

    Ive still got all my speccy stuff in the loft. I keep meaning to dust it off & give it a go, but what Syzable says is about right.

    Indeed. I cant imagine anyone getting too excited playing Elite or Chuckie Egg, even though they reigned supreme. Probably best to marvel at the game play / playability from the software and the ridiculously low powered hardware it ran on.

    Imagine trying to play speccy game on some of the large screen tvs of today. Hope there is a High Def connection.

    well it would seem people have gone back to simplicity in case you havnt seen angry birds et al, these are gmes you can pick up for 10-15 mins and put down again, seem to be resonably popular with iphone users and android emulators despite the negativity itt

    wireless speccy with games built in ready to play, like an education for kids of today and probably started a lot of careers in i.t

    I wouldn't say it's negativity, as Sy says "These things are always best left in your memories as when you go back it's never the same". It wouldn't be the same either loading pre-loaded games, many an hour I spent typing in a programe for it to crash & spent even longer to try & de-bug it & then there was the noise it made when it loaded a programe/game from a tape...........brrrrrrrrrrrr... beep.... brrrrrrrr bepepepepeepbeepbeepbbbeepbepp­beeeeeeeeeeep, oh happy days !
