    Never played any of them.
    Only heard of streets of rage 2.

    shining force 2 - awesome strategy rpg with interesting characters

    rings of power - great rpg from naughty dog, the makers of uncharted, seriously underappreciated cos people think it's clunky and too hard and won't give it the time of day, but they're missing out on a true gem.

    buck rogers: Countdown to doomsday
    - great rpg with a sci-fi twist, instead of swords and axes etc you have laser guns and the like, also includes some space battles and exploration later on in the game.

    kid chameleon
    - still my fave platform game of all time, even more so than the awesome super mario world.

    streets of rage 2
    - sunk so many hours into this classic, improves upon the first game in every way and is still even better than streets of rage 3, probably because the levels are better and the sound effects are way better, especially the ever so satisfying *crack* when you hit an enemy. I'm a bonafide master at the game and have even finished it on hardest without losing a single life, albeit using savestates but that still takes some skill.

    Early years- Pac Man probably, it was more addictive and tense than the other classics for me

    Early 80s. Jet Pac for the Spectrum. I grew up in the UK so I don't know if this game is known outside the UK. The company that made it made so many great games, but this was probably the best. The ZX spectrum was a part of most schoolboys growing up in the early 80s. Of course I said I wanted to get it for homework.

    Mid- late 80s.The Atari ST and Amiga ruled. Dungeon Master. Bard's Tale. Elite. Elite was good for the time but had some serious imbalances. Getting military lasers made combat boring as you just ran away and hot enemies with your rear gun. And asteroid mining was tedious work for a very meagre return.

    Early 90s Midwinter. An obscure(ish) classic! A hybrid first person/ strategy game where you're on a snowy island and have to destroy the headquarters on an invading force located in the south. ou can ski, take snow vehicles, cable cars and hangliders to get from place to place. You can recruit others too. I found this fascinating t the time, I'm not sure if it would cut it today. Carrier Command. I understand that Ultima Underworld, Doom, Quake and System Shock were innovative back them, but I've never played them. Yet.

    Mid to late 90s. Ahhh, the golden age of videogaming surely? It seemed every month brought new and innovative games to the market (amongs all the usual dross of course!) Half Life, System Shock 2, Rainbow Six, Quake 2, Tomb Raider series (as well as some Tomb Raidery games like Drakan). SIm City 3000, Caesar 2 and it's succesors. And simulations were starting to get realistic physics adn great graphics. But my personal all time favorite game Thief:The dark Project. I preferred this to the sequel Thief 2. It's just a fascinating world to immerse yourself in. I've been a fan for 16 years now.

    I stopped playing video games almost entirely after 2000.

    I've got the sequel to Castle of Illusion for my Master System called Land of Illusion. If you've still got the console it's well worth checking out. You can get it for under a tenner on Ebay.

    I'm torn between the Call of Duty series or the Colin McRae Rally series ...

    Special mentions for Quake 3 Arena and UnReal Tournament

    Very addictive

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.
