Any of you interested in Retro Gaming?

Currently collecting Playstation 1 games, with a smattering of NES.

Due to not even having any modern consoles, in fact not any 21st Century ones, when I do play games, it is now essentially retro. :D

I'd play my PlayStation more, but I scarcely have the time what with all the other things I have to and want to do! Also very occasionally play on my Game Boy Colour. Don't tend to play games on the computer, but would be great to play some older games on it.

Had 2 Game Boys when I was a wee one. Never had the Colour though.

I have a bunch of retro consoles, but alas... not the time to play them.

I beat Mint's story on Threads of Fate a couple of months back, though.

Always a great feeling when you clock a game.

I think I prefer retro games to most modern ones!! I recently discovered the the ps3 can play ps1 games, so I FINALLY managed to beat Croc: Legend of the Gobbos, and I want to play a load of my childhood faves again!!

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone
The Emperors New Groove
The Lion King

I miss playing Theme Park World, I bought Theme Hospital from Origin and I need to finish that.....couple of retro sonic games...

Ah, Theme Park World...
'Won' it from a cereal in the late '90s, or very early '00s, but it just would not work on our PC! Knowing more about these things now, I guess a few settings had to be changed. But anyway, at some point had it once I got a PlayStation and couldn't for the life of me work out how to properly build the rollercoaster. Guess I wasn't ever getting the most out of the game. :D

Also want to say that I have Croc! I used to have a cheat book where you could unlock loads/all? of the levels (anything to avoid bloody boss levels!), yet I still tried to go through them all best as I could.

I have HP and the Philosopher's Stone on GBC and I didn't take to it; was rather like they were trying to copy Pokemon and in a boring way. I did have Chamber of Secrets on PS and that was more fun  - although I got a (now) ex friend to complete the harder bits for me. :D

Annnd, also have the Lion King game for PS and GBC. :D
