    Wow Impressed... Remember?

    Just been chatting to a little lad from year 6 about games and he mentioned he had a Playstation 1 we both laughed until I asked him what games he even plays on it anymore and he said this

    O017.Oddworld_Abes_Odyssey-front.jpg

    Took me back and I'm impressed that such a young lad with all the latest stuff PS4 etc... still keeps the legendary old games alive
    Anyone remember this? Can anyone remember what happened when you pressed "X" on your Playstation controller?

    My 7 year old boy is a Manic Miner\Jet Set Willy fanatic. He loves retro-games and ever since we took him to Play in Blackpool earlier in the month he's been bugging me for a ZX Spectrum.
    He has access to emulators on the kids laptop (a 7 year old Acer that keeps them off mine!) and loves games for the gameplay rather than the graphics. It's the best way to start IMO
    Oddworld?! Pah. Overrated modern rubbish

    Fantastic games. You can get them on Steam! Or at least, you could, as I bought them ages ago.

    Haha completely forgot about the words they said I just had a major flash back of that. I never completed this game though as a kid I was always stuck at one part, I used to love controlling the yellow robot people and make them beat up the other Abe's

    Haha love it proper retro gamer right here and he's 7 that's great. I think that plays a big part in my gaming style at the moment I no longer look at how good a game is but also factor in that it should have amazing graphics also which is a shame but I no longer like looking at blocky, pixelated games!
    Oddworld was blooming' amazing how dare you!

    Manic Miner/Jet Set Willy - my fav games. I used to dread the sound when he died on a level. I loved Attack of the mutant camels too!!!!

    Me too, it wasn't even that far in. I think I kept getting annoyed at the lack of save points (as it was back then) Get right to the end of the level, get eaten by a crab thingy and have to start the whole level again.

    They are doing a 3d remake of the first game last I heard.

    New 'n' Tasty Oddworld Inhabitants - Oddworld Inhabitants, Inc

    I'll be all over this when it comes out.

    Strangers has had a few HD remakes on Sony's hardware, definitely on PS3 and I think on Vita.. may be worth taking a look if you've got the systems.
