    Apparently there's an iPhone version in the works. I am sceptical.

    I dread to think how many days I spent playing Golden Eye and AVP. I seem to remember spending an entire weekend trying to complete one of the time challenges in Golden Eye. AVP just has to be played in the dark. I bought it on Steam again for £3 the other weekend having not played it for about 9 years. Still awesome, such a shame about the recent release.

    Dungeon Keeper is still one of my all time favourite games. It's a shame to think current younger generations won't get to grow up with such British wit in their flavours of the month.

    Your wish is my command. Buy links for each game added, or link to an online playable version.

    Thanks for all the links Joe. I'm amazed at how much people are charging for original DK CDs. I'm starting to think my collection of 1990s PC games may be starting to be worth something (I was reading the other day about how first edition American McGee's Alice DVDs are now often worth more than their original cost)

    Forgot all about team17! Alien Breed was brilliant too.

    Nothing from the Gollop Brothers; was hoping UFO enemy unknown would have snuck in there. Was hoping syndicate would have made an appearence.

    Elite is seminal: as we played it we dreamt of the day that something like Eve Online would be possible.

    Ah, the memories... Good times, good times.

    Even though I edited this article earlier today (oops), we seem to have forgotten about the Bitmap Brothers and some of their great 80s and 90s games such as Speedball 2 and Gods.

    Xenon 2: Megablaster was one my early favourite games, even though I could never get past the first level.
