I think I may have just lost the ability to see in more than 16 colours...
I've just taken a massive trip back in time with that lot; so many of those titles I played and enjoyed, and brought back some fond memories of ones that I loved and forgotten about. Outside the ones we all remember (Manic Miner, Elite, etc), 3D Ant Attack was just beautiful and I remember the hours I lost on Back to Skool. And, TLL (Tornado Low Level) just blew me away as a kid! Fantastic.
Was sitting here thinking where is Chuckie Egg, one of two games anyone I have spoken to about the old games always mention. The other being Dizzy.
Found it in the end, top 20 for Chuckie Egg - surprised to see Dizzy a bit far down. They are the only two games anyone has ever mentioned to me.
I can't believe Delta Wing and They Stole a Million aren't in that list, and Elite only managed 16th.
I've recently become addicted to playing Into The Eagle's Nest online!
Humbug. I've not long finished pratting around with the Atari 800XL emulator because of what someone said to me the other day, now it looks like I need to drag out the Speccy ones too ;)
Gotta keep myself amused with the kids in bed and crap on TV! :)
I loved The Sentinel but wouldn't have put Elite back at number 17..
Also where are the Wally series of adventure games. "Everyones a Wally" deserves a mention just for the Mike Berry penned theme tune on the B side of the cassette!
Battle Of The Toothpase Tubes was also missing.
Battle of the Toothpaste Tubes - World of Spectrum
Elite should have been higher; does any remember the 'Lenslock' thing you had to use to be able to play it though, what a ball ache that was! :)
