    madden 2002 for the n64. i swear i think they took the graphics from madden 90 and the gameplay from madden 95 and combined the two games and called it madden 2002.

    btw, i've always liked every madden game except for that one. but madden 2002 for the ps2 is cool but i didn't have any system except for n64 at the time.

    >>>
    A car.... definately a particular Talbot Sunbeam I bought when I was about 17/18.
    <<<

    Oddly, the same here, mine was dark blue 1978 model, looked OK but was a never ending source of trouble. It also provided me with one of the most exciting moments of my life. I was approaching a set of traffic lights which were red. I put my foot ob the brake pedal, and it limply travelled all the way to the floor. It was Sunday afternoon, there were no other cars - whooo, always remember that moment.

    Sounds like you were lucky ... or not, depending on how you look at it!

    Did yours have any guts to it? As they're rear wheel drive, I was constantly trying to kick to back out when going round corners, but only once did it do it right

    A PC Game CD called "Excalibur 2050" or something...
    I finally saved $20 of my allowance and so i went out looking for a game to buy. I found this and bought it for $15 mainly because it "looked" interesting on the cover and cost less compared to other games. But when i put it in my computer, I found my computer was too old and primitive to run the game. (I should have read the system requirements). Then i had to wait 4 months to get my new PC and when i finally got to play it, it turned out to be the dumbest game i have ever played with the crappiest graphics (save some text adventures that i downloaded and were about 24 kb).
    That was probably my worst purchase.

    umm... i bought a drag racing game once. the controls were weak to say the least and the gameplay was boring as crap... graphics were ok, but not superb...

    Hammer:

    >>> Did yours have any guts to it?

    Yes. When it went, it went well. It was, after all, quite a small, light car, with a moderately fruity 1600 engine. Trouble was it only ever went "really well" for periods of a few days at a time before something else broke. The doors never shut right either, the all glass rear hatch probably never so. Hmmm, lots of memories coming back...

    Oh god, I just remembered that thing!! Weren't they a nightmare. I thought they looked so cool until I actually owned one!

    >Hmmm, lots of memories coming back...
    Yep

    The only reason I bought mine was because I'd seen another one going round town that was owned by a mechanic, and had been "upgraded" considerably. In fact, it was a v. powerful, and good looking car. Used to do doughnuts and burn out's all the time, and made me green with envy. So I bought mine..... big mistake :rolleyes

    We had an austin princess(1700 mind) that ran better!

    Oh and a few mark 1/2 escorts.

    Cortinas ruled the roost then.(and early Capri's)
