    I was unaware of "A Prophet". Just looked on IMDB. This guy seems to be getting typecast.

    Was that the one with Keefer Sunderland?

    I never saw one single episode. I'm going to have that inscribed on my tombstone. Unless I'm cremated obviously.

    You should give it a go and count the number of times they say "on American soil". It's a lot.

    I got all nostalgic and looked at these







    Phoenix was my best game, I'd spend hours on it. Defender was awesome but I had pudgy sausage fingers and was never any good at mastering the multiple control buttons it but even the sounds bring back memories of holidays on the Isle of Wight. Dragons Lair was impossible, I never got far and certainly didn't get anywhere near rescuing the horny princess. I remember standing in amazement watching an older kid beat the game.

    Other honorable mentions;

    Space Invaders
    Asteroids
    Galaxian

    Frogger was a masterpiece of a video game.

    What was the one where the controller was a spinning ball and you had to shoot just ahead of bombs dropping? I was useless at it whatever it was called.

    Same with pinball machines, I absolutely loved the idea of pinball but it was always more expensive and sure as sh.it the first ball would always roll straight down the middle between the paddles. The original KISS pinball machine is worth a few quid nowadays.

    I also liked the sit-in Star Wars game where you were in an X-Wing shooting up the Death Star.

    Too poor to own a home computer when they came out. My mate had the one where you loaded the games with a cassette tape, was that a Spectrum? Played Manic Miner and Jet Pack Willy (?) Others around the same time were the Commodore 64, Vic 20, BBC etc. When everyone was starting out on Nintendo we still couldn't afford an Atari ffs!

    Grove Junior (Junior) has got an X-Box and the sort of games he plays make what I used to pay 10p for in the arcades look like cave paintings by comparison. The level of affordable tech these days is incredible and, as usual, totally taken for granted by ingrate children.
