      Re: Remember...

      I had a Speccy emulator not so long ago and 1000's of games on disc, Maninc Miner, Chucky Egg, was up until about 4 O'clock in the morning playing them, brought back some memories.

      Just goes to show, graphics arn't everything, gameplay makes a hell of a difference. something todays game makers need to take on board. The Nintendo Wii is a prime example of this.

      Just the opposite, the Wii wins against everything for gameplay even though the graphics are not as good as the Xbox 360 or PS3.

      I must of read that wrong

      I don't like the Wii at all, the game play is absolute rubbish - it can be OK if your playing as a family or the like but NAH not for me. PC > PS3 > XBox 360 > blah blah > Wii
