  1. I've been playing this (and sometimes its sequels) fairly regularly for over three decades now. First thing I'd do in the morning as a kid was put the tape in to load while I was getting ready for school just so I could get a few caves in before I had to leave the house. If you think that's unhealthy, I used to have dreams about what was behind the titanium wall. I have it installed on my Wii, and a C64 emulator is one of the first things I install on a new laptop. Safe to say it struck a chord with me that continues to resonate. I think it's the perfect videogame.

    What's The Oldest Game You Still Play?

    My three decade long infatuation with Boulder Dash on the C64 doesn't seem to be fading, these days thanks to the emulator for the Wii. The sideways Wiimote is perfect for it.
  6. Amazing thread. The melancholia and pining for my lost childhood that I'm currently in the grip of are totally worth it.

    Obscure Japanese VGM Arrangements

    Not sure if this fits the bill but I absolutely adore it, the Colony stage from Axelay. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8HmSCyrq7g

    Greatest power-ups of all time?

    Yes! My Dad had the coin-op in his bar all those years ago. I discovered the cheat by accident when I wasn't paying attention.

    Essential side-scolling beat 'em ups?

    Cadillacs and Dinosaurs (CPS1) and Alien vs Predator (CPS2).

    SNES Super Play Magazine...

    It really was an excellent magazine about my favourite console of all time. It reviewed a lot of really interesting obscure stuff that you wouldn't otherwise hear about pre-internet. I loved the manga overtones too. PM me if you do end up collecting them, I've got the first thirty-or-so issues but I'm not interested in splitting them.
