Nes - Mario
Megadrive - Sonic, Desert Strike, Golden Axe.
N64 - Goldeneye
Snes - Street Fighter 2
PS1 - command and conquer, Abes Odyssey.
Xbox original- Halo, Fable.
PS2/3/4 - Cod/Medal of Honor FPS style stuff.
PC - World of Warcraft, Sim City, Footy manager games.

I've lost track of the number of games I've played and I'd probably change some of that list on another day.

Despite playing violent games for so long I've yet to kill anyone :-)

Worth watching High Score on Netflix if you're interested in how gaming began and expanded.

Not played Pro Evo in years but I always thought it was better than Fifa. Fifa 20 on the Xbox One was very very poor, and Pro Evo could easily better it, if they're as good as they were.

Sounds like you're a similar age to me. Mario Kart on the SNES was brilliant though. N64 was what, late 90s going on 2000?

We had one at our house in the Uni days.

They came up with Sonic to compete with Mario on the SNES. Just a random fact for you there. I remember reading that it was actually drawn up as a very quick draft and Sega liked it and it went from there. Had Nintendo not had Mario, they probably wouldn't have bothered.

Mario fan though over Sonic. Thought the SNES was much better than than the Megadrive.

Nanosaur 2 by Pangea.

Wasted a few years on it, when it came free with my Mac.

There was another game with it where one had to tip a surface to move a ball.

Trouble is that I had total recall of it, in bed after so I stopped playing it.
