    Re: Atari 2600

    Got my 2600 for my 12th birthday and I loved it. Came with Joust which was a fantastic 2 player and I got Pole Position, Megamania and Planet Patrol to start off with. I think the hate for the 2600's...

    Re: First video game console?

    My first console was the Atari 2600 that I got for my 12th birthday. It was the newer black and silver one. I got some money that day too and the local game shop had a massive collection of 2600...

    Is that the same guy who has a You Tube channel under the same name? I like his videos and I'm subscribed to his channel but I didn't know he'd wrote a book.

    Re: Best toy you NEVER had

    I always wanted a BMX. When I asked for a bike I maybe should have been more specific. When I was 8 a new family moved in next door and they had twins, a boy and a girl. The twins had a Mag Burner...

    Sticky: Re: A trip down memory lane

    I used to love an ice-cream tub, with loads of raspberry sauce. God only knows what that would have cost my aunt in the cinema, I never had to pay. Wouldn't be surprised if a 2 scoop tub was about a...
  7. Re: What have you ate today to remind you of the 70s

    Do you still get a litre of ice cream in the rectangle cardboard box? Was about 15 years ago I last remember eating it. I had a pack of wafers so I would make wafer ice-cream sandwiches for me and my...

    A Marathon/Snickers.

    To me a Snickers tastes like Christmas. As a kid if I was buying sweets I would always buy Cadbury's. At Christmas my Gran would always get me a Mars selection box. I liked...

    I can't remember if the cinema sweets were as ridiculously priced back then as they are now? When I went to see Trainspotting 2 it was 4 for a bag of Fruit Pastilles or Malteasers.

    I remember Global had this bizarre pay when you return them rather than pay when you take them out. My mate drove us to the shop one day and asked me to pop in and return 4 tapes. I walked in, dumped...

    Re: First Video recorder?

    We didn't get our first video until 1987. No one round here called it a Vee See Are, it was just a video. Our video was a Panasonic which my dad bought second hand from someone in work. Not sure how...
