    The Yanks are insular when it comes to anything. If an American writes a history of home computers then don't expect anything on the Amstrad CPC, MSX, anything from Acorn, and only a brief mention of the Sinclair Spectrum. Expect to see no end of stuff about Apple, Commodore, Tandy, Atari, and the IBM PC Jr instead.

    I agree Mario 3 is a game even when you complete you are gutted inside, great game lots of depth and keeps you amused for hour's on end!!!!

    "but it wasn't a proper 3D game"

    Real 3D doesn't seem to have taken off to any great degree in the gaming market. Maybe it's because people don't want to wear specs or a headset to play the games. I've played a few brilliant Google Cardboard 3D games, but if the graphics are even a tiny bit wrong, you can feel nauseous with motion sickness very quickly. Still, there's a lot of free 3D Android games out there (3D Labyrinth is a good start) and a Google Cardboard headset only costs a few quid. The last 3D PC game I bought was Avatar, but my PC doesn't have the processing power to play it in 3D. Still the world of Pandora looks very beautiful even in 2D, and you have the freedom to look up down around and behind you. I would still vote for Elite as the best computer game of all time though.
