Here is my brief entry for this blogfest hosted by Alex J Cavanaugh, be sure to visit his cool blog.
My top 3 games, I went for video games to keep it simple:
This game starts off with a murder and you are the culprit. You must then set about discovering why you commited the crime. Full of action and mystery this had me hooked all the way to the end and it would make a great movie. It was known as The Indigo Prophecy in the USA. Played on PS2.
This spin on Space Invaders is a classic shoot-em-up from the early 80's. I spent many hours on it in the arcades of UK seaside resort Blackpool. You can play it free on-line, just search for it and blast those aliens. Great fun.
Another 80's arcade game. This has been updated many times but the original was like a personal challenge to me as a boy. I was on a mission to beat characters such as Glass Joe, Pizza Pasta, Kid Quick and Bald Bull on my way to becoming the champ. Again, there are versions available on-line.
I find retro games much more enjoyable than the majority of todays over complicated and time consuming sagas.
Retro is cool !!
