Hi guys,

After 36 issues I thought it would be good fun (read easy feature) to do a list of the top 100 retro games. So feel free to tell me your top five computer, arcade and console games of all time (consoles include everything up to the Dreamcast). Please make sure you list games in order of preferance.

Just one top five please that encompases everything.

Are you requiring an order or just counting up the votes?

Also are you classifying games series as one entry?

All the info's in the current issue ;)

Just list your top five in preferance, I'll take care of the rest... also it's individual games, not franchises.

1. Sensible World Of Soccer / Amiga

2. Super Mario World / SNES

3. Zelda: A Link To The Past / SNES

4. Zelda: Ocarina Of Time / N64

5. Sonic The Hedgehog / MegaDrive

It should actually be 5 of the annual Amiga versions of Sensi, but that would just be silly. btw, are you lumping Sensi and SWOS together as one is just a super-refined version of the other? I would presume so.

I'd find it so hard with 2d shmups.

Gradius V is fantastic, but to new - anyway i prefered Rtype to Gradius - then theres Armalyte, Hades Nebular and Starforce.

But Orydne is great because its wacky and has nice FX and some lush levels (Pop 'N' Twinbee is also great) and Parallax pips makes it because the whole package was great.

Fantastic title music too (by M. Galway of course).

Man, a top 10 would've been so much easier... Off the top of my head:

1. Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night (PS)

2. Super Mario World (Snes)

3. Streets Of Rage 2 (Megadrive)

4. Wipeout 2097 (PS)

5. Grim Fandango (PC)

I was tempted to stick Rez in there as it IS a DC release, but I don't think that should really count.... :ph34r:

It's not your fault that the Dreamcast died an early death and it's on the PS2, get that fucker in there :P
