I would have to say Bard's Tale encompassed many many hours of my youth. I can remember sitting in the basement with graph paper trying to map out the dungeons...

>ZX Spectrum

The speccy? ;) I had an Amstrad CPC....good old speccies were popular though.

If the Dizzy series were on the commodore, then Id have to give them a vote. Either that or exolon and ranarama :)

lol,classic ruber boy/fatty fight ahead :)

although i owned c64 - IMO oppinios amiga 500 is by FAR the greatest game computer ever.

for me it was Terry's big adventure - it is mario style game but far better in my oppinion.

i played tons of tons of c64 and amiga games and this oen is really top.

as a matter of fact i am going to play it right now! :)

i also liked Kick Start on c64 - jumping bikes.

oh and 1942 (airplane)- that musics is still in my ears...oh memories..sweet memories :)

in amiga i used to draw all labirinths in Eye of the beholder 2!

Manic miner on the rubber beast. Only game i am still playing all these years later, didn't like jet set willy that much though! Thank god for emulation. Also loved Jack the Nipper, Feud, The Hobbit, Herberts Dummy Run was the first game I ever completed and the excitment of getting a C90 from one of your friends at school, absolute bliss.

Never liked that Commodore thing though, it jsut didn't have the charm and you had to like one or the other!

I will have to second Summer and Winter games

Hours and hours of my youth were spent on those two. A couple of guys crowded around the c64 in the dining room, goin' for the gold.

Loved loderunner too, many more lost hours.

Yes, Horace Goes Skiing. Those were the days. Getting the little guy to go across the road and go skiing.

I had a Spectrum 48k with hard keys. Still got it actually.

Oh I wish I still had my spectrum, best games for me where Jet Pac, Scuba Dive and of course Manic Miner.
Someone gave me a spectrum with the hard keys a few weeks ago but it doesn't work, gutted!
I still got my QL though.

I only had a VIC 20. My cousin used to drive me mad with his flashy 64, with balloons that glided smoothly across the screen a pixel at time. I used to program stuff for it, and after 15 years away from the computer came back and found the web required remarkably similar skills in scripting languages. I do remember Horace and also Manic Minor on the spectrum, and the geek at school with the ZX80. No really good games for the poor old VIC 20 though. :(

God, just remembered, Turbo Esprit. Run over those pedestrians, stop at the lights, ram that car
