Had some time to play around today so I thought I'd take a look at a blast from my past. I grew up playing games on a zx spectrum before learning to write for it. One of the earliest addictive games I played was this one. I give you Jet Set Willy. The father of all platform games. OMG its even harder than I remember. I'm sure as a kid I could cross the banyan tree, been trying all day still no joy!
Here take a look. Gotta love some of these old games!
Obviously its a .zip not .txt but boards attatchments feature sucks balls!

So, you have a link to a good Speccy emulator?

I used to have every NES and SNES game on here, but I forgot to back them up last time I formatted :(

For some ungodly reason, I can play,"Hals Hole in One Golf" for Super Nintendo for hours upon hours. I don't even play golf that much in real life. But for some reason, I can tear up that golf course silly. There is no one who can beat me at this game.

Dizzy. Those games aren't as difficult as I remember them but are still challenging.

@Stoned_coder : I've been playing Football Manager (That's REALLY old) for the spectrum on the ZX32 emulator. ZX32 is a very fine emulator IMHO http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Bay/9932/

Right on Govtcheez! I've been playing Monkey Island lately, and I'm about to embark on playing all the King's Quest and Space Quest games again.

I could probably hook you up with the SNES games.

I hear that Mega Man stuff, man good times. I have most of the NES ones in original form...good condition boxes, manuals and AD inserts. I collect NES games off eBay for now, and SNES games where I can. My goal is to just collect the ones that Interest me. I have like 13 video game systems and the newest one is a Dreamcast. :-/

MAME is also fun. So is playing Game Boy Classic video games through a Game Boy emulator on your computer while outputting to a projector. Talk about huge characters. Hahaha.
