    An awesome game! I used to play lemmings tribes religously too :D.

    And a game called 'Beneath A Steel Sky' which is the BEST GAME EVER. No question, infact i'm now going to have to dig it out!

    I've still got the original Word (I'm not sure if it was microsoft-developed or 3rd party) on a floppy for the Atari 5500 ST, or similar. I still have the console too, and an original b+w screen, and about 30 games with many original boxes.

    Woops...wrong forum, this isn't the Sales section :p

    commodore vic-20(at my parents house), custom psu, tape drive, and a 64k memory cartridge to extend its ability to do memory intensive tasks.
    That thing was fun. I remember the little ship that you had to keep between the two canyon walls which were represented by letters that just streamed down the screen.
    Even better was the plane that dropped bombs on a dam and you had to avoid the aa fire.
    We found a way to cheat in that game, we re-wrote the code that gave us more lives.

    Oh and who could forget the game where missles would shoot at a rocket ship. And the missles had two numbers on them and you had to input the sum of the numbers to shoot down the missles. classic.

    Is it bad that the oldest I have in my room has a 1.3GHz Pentium M?
    My granddad tried to give me an ancient "laptop" of his with a funny display, maybe four lines in depth? but my mum vetoed it :(
