Video games meme

While I'm distracted working on the plot for Hal Spacejock 5, here's a meme for the games players amongst you.


1) Look at the list and bold those you have played

2) Underline the games you LOVE(D).

3) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've played 6 and force games (and probably emulators) upon them.

We have a PSX but I lost one too many saves when the kids were using it (e.g. they overwrote my Gran Turismo save at about 80% completion) I bought multiple ram cards but it never seemed to help.

Therefore I stick to PC gaming where I can back stuff up & control my own data.

We also have a PS2 but we only got it for the kids - Singstar and Eye-toy. No other games.
