    How many games.....?

    Have you sat down & added up how many games you've purchased in various formats. From the ZX81 on...... it's just plain scary! I got well over 250 (cuz I is old!) and stopped counting there. All that money!

    Loads.

    I've got a lot better though, I only buy games every now and again now. Only got Halo3 and Mass Effect for my 360, and I'll get Burnout when its out. Beyond that, apart from XBLA games, companies are going to have to earn my money by actually bringing out games I want to play a vastly inflated price for.

    Re: How many games.....?

    ... I is old too (well, mid 30s) and I really don't want to think about the amount of poppy spent over the years on games - not only games but also the hardware. I'm just as bad as I ever was, I will hoover up all the 1/2 decent new releases I can find...
    What we share with everyone is glum, and dark...

    Well into the 300's here if i count all the old £1.99 games on the BBC etc.

    I've got well over a hundred PC format games, (tend to keep all the old style boxes)

    Re: How many games.....?

    Commodore 16 - couple of dozen
    Amstrad 8256 - five or six
    Sega Master System 20+
    Sega Mega Drive 50+
    Sega MegaCD 10+
    Super Nintendo 5+
    Playstation 1 - 20+
    PC 20+

    I would have bought more for the MD and SNES, but was dragged into the North East's seedy underworld of games copiers....something about which I totally regret and now say 'Copying is bad, m'kay', but at the time was dangerous and cool

    Re: How many games.....?

    Oh, I forgot: I won Operation Wolf for the spectrum in a C+VG or Your Sinclair magazing compo when I was abuot 12. I was thrilled. I'd never won anything before.

    I could never understand the appeal of OutRun. Motorcycle games where you get to actually sit on a replica bike: fair enough. Steering a car standing up? No thanks.

    Going back to the BBC days now, I would dearly love to play Codename: Droid or Strykers Run again.

    I've already got the fantasic Imogen remake by Ovine by design. One of the best games ever ever ever, faithfully recreated for the PC. Get it! Get it now!

    When you think that that was a BBC B game, the graphics were little short of mindblowing, compared to the "knitted wooly jumper" style of repton. Or Repton 2. Or repton 3. Or repton 4.

    Re: How many games.....?

    Why do my posts seem to be stuck at 165?

    Edit: oh. they're not. Still a hell of a long way off the magic 500 and my own avatar though. Sigh.

    aaaah the 15 minute "im trying to be a fax modem" loading noise, brings back those memories of sitting there waiting to get on Vigilante or Sooty & Sweep's milk run
