I have recently purchased a brand new PS3 (I know very late behind everyone else) and now rather than a craving of new and wonderfully flashy games, I just want to play retro games! I actually blame the PS3 for this as it has a Lemmings theme that reminded me of the wonderful pleasure I had of playing the game as a kid when it first came out. I still remember the sound of the music in the room and the pixel graphics, and have fond memories of it all.
So after 4 days of managing to refrain from playing, I caved and now have the retro game cravings! I want to play the games that made me first fall in love with console and PC games. Those games that you remember as a kid and though can can’t remember the name, you never forget the fun or the characters.
I now am on the hunt for my earthworm jim disc and ‘where in the world is Carmen” game so that I can relive my gaming youth!
So what are your retro games? What was the first game that got you fixed to your computer?
