OK so here is a bit of a hopefully fun game. Make a collage like the one below showing 9 retro games that for one reason or another mean a lot to you, then everyone else can try to guess them and when someone has gotten one right you explain what it is that makes the game important to you... The games dont all have to be hard to guess but hey we might see a few obscure ones here and there.

Is that any better? I really should have checked it before going to sleep thanks OR. I edited this on my phone if it still doesn't work I'll try again later.

Yep!

I'm not doing a very good job at this, the only one I know for sure is Super Mario World. Guesses on the others:
Street Fighter?
Some kind of Mr Men game...?
A FF-tactics like game on the GC... not much clue
Knock-off Super Mario Bros, knock-off golden axe, who knows what else

Hey Jawafour this is in answer to you
the kickstart game is kick start 2 for the spectrum , yes it's super Mario world and Alex the kid in miracle world, and the Mr men game is for the spectrum and is called. First steps with the Mr men

That really is a great game. I've not played the Spectrum version but it does look very similar to the C64 edition that I enjoyed. The C16 version is completely different but still excellent fun; it' a single player game where you collect balloons whilst on your bike. It's worth a go if you get the opportunity :) .
