That's right!

Due to the fact my PS2 is broke, it's time to wheel out the Mega Drive 2 again. Looks like I'll be playing Brian Lara 97 instead of 2005! Sensible Soccer instead of Pro Evo 5, and Sonic instead of Rugby League 2, for the near future anyway....

Anyone still got this classic console knocking about?

Wow, I had one of those! And an Amiga 500! And a Game Gear, which I still have actually...

Can't afford a PSP.

But as for retro games, man, I wish I still had my SNES. Nothing beats Super Famicom....Nothing beats rock.


Actually, Megadrive and SNES are about equal I think. As is their mascots Sonic and Super Pipe dream man respectively....That is, if you play Sonic the 'right' way.

Define "the right way?"

Or do I want an insight into Planet Kaftka?

Meh, too many Badniks lying about. Anyone remember the Marble Zone? That was tough, back in the day!

Still got a Mega-Drive lying about in my attic, but IMO it's one of the best consoles ever.

I still use an emulator to play classics such as Brian Lara Cricket '96 (the best version
<
), Streets of Rage 2, Golden Axe and Sensi.

there were some great classics across all sorts of platforms mega drive had some good game so did the snes and the amiga. i only have a pc now so rely on emulation and pc remakes of some old classic like leemings and metal slug.

PSP = Good for handheld, not worth 180 quid though no way.

As for classic consoles my dad is a collecter, he has an Atari (not which one but has wooden panelling on it and it was the originator for Space invaders and Pac man)
PS1
Dreamcast
Xbox
All sorts I have lost count.

Just whenever you're ready to bring them out of the closet though. The worst thing to do is rush it. Some people are very judgemental.

I think I threw out my old sega master system in the bin last week. Last year I went looking for some cords for it so that my ex could reminisce playing sonic but dick smiths and co didn't have any anymore
