    I've always been a big fan of the F1 games, usually full distance on ace level
    Started on the Amiga
    4680-Formula1GrandPrix.
    Then on the PC
    Spiele-Historie-Rennspiele-Grand-Prix-2-479x300-bd4e431bb05d9a2a.

    Sports games were always my thing.

    On the Spectrum "Daley Thompson's Decathlon" was a rubber key pounding favourite, and "Match Day" for football. Football Manager too, with the tiny stick men playing out the games, now that was addictive stuff, with Watford conquering all with me as manager. Graham Taylor? Pah! I did much better :lol:

    There was a Formula 1 strategy game that I used to enjoy too, can't remember it's name though. I mainly used to play as Ricardo Patrese...for some reason :Laughing:

    Also on the Spectrum, who could forget "Manic Miner", and then "Jet Set Willy." Or "Skool Daze," another classic.

    Happy days...

    Likewise - many times did the joystick go flying across the room out of frustration - oh, thats another thing, I miss when toys were virtually indestructible...

    Never got into computer games. Still don't own a games console and don't know how I would fit that in now. :Blushing:
