    Here is a little page for us retro gamers to be able to post up any recommended games or games that you need / want to hunt down to add to your collection. I am sure with a lot of input and feedback, we will be able to offer plenty of ideas about what games to grab. Also you may see a game posting up that you may have loved in the past and have forgotten about it. I will add up a few headings (Consoles / PC etc) and we can start filling them in. Hope this takes off. :)

    I'll post my favourites later but in the meantime a small correction: Contra is called Probotector here and in Europe and it features robots instead of humans. Just in case somebody tries to chase it down (and you should! the SNES version is amazing).

    gotta add Theme hospital for pc ;)
    Also for the ps1, Coolboarders 2, tony hawk's pro skater 1, Syphon Filter and Parappa the Rapper.

    edit:
    Just a thought deuscore, I rekon if you arranged the pc games by the year they were released it would tidy up the list a bit, but it's your call.

    edit 2:
    Plok and bubsy for the snes.

    Cool, I've fixed the order of the games in PC to year they came out. Is that cool the way it is or should I change it to the years written up as well? If so, I'll happily fix it tomorrow I'm bout ready to go to bed. :tired:

    It's your thread so feel free to arrange it how you want, my suggestion would be to copy the post I made and paste it into the pc section and maybe add some colour to the years (red would stand out well) or maybe some bullet points next to each year or even change the fonts to how you like.

    Edit:
    PS. I rekon this thread would make for a good sticky.

    Fixed up the PC section and added in some more games as put forward by peoples. Still have to add the rest of Ashpool's suggestions in when I've got a bit more time in the arve.

    Thanks to Spazowacky for the help. :) Hopefully we can get this turned into a Sticky.

    Cmon Elvis... I'm sure you've got shiteloads to add in. :)
