Hello everyone! I haven't been around here for yonks, but someone one the RVG official twitter prodded me and told me to come on over. So I have! ;)

Other machines I owned back in the day: Acorn Electron, Amstrad CPC 464, SNES, N64, Dreamcast (I know... I was always on the wrong side of the playground arguments and still have the emotional scars to prove it)

Looking forward to chatting with you on these here forums!

Cheers!

*stands up*

Hello everyone, my name's Marc and I'm addicted to video games.

It started when I was about six years old when my dad took me to his friend's house to play on his BBC Micro. From the moment the first boulder dropped in Repton and made me jump out of my skin, I was hooked. The fascination deepened upon watching the terrifying Sinistar clone, and a few weeks later my dad brought home an Acorn Electron (we couldn't afford a Beeb, but I didn't care - my Elk played Repton, Danger UXB, Cybertron Mission and Plan B and I was ecstatic!)

But my first love wasn't my true love. After a brief stint with an Amstrad CPC 464 (it took me a while to realise that going from an Electron to an Amstrad was no upgrade), one Christmas morning I was given an Atari ST by my Mum, along with a Tesco carrier bag full of  individually wrapped (bless her), pirated game compilation disks. From that day forward, my ST and I have been inseparable. It has sat alongside and outlived a Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Playstation, Dreamcast, Gamecube, Xbox, XBox 360, many PC's and never played second fiddle. Even now as I snap up Amigas, Spectrums, NES's and other old systems, the ST is the one I constantly return to.

Thank you. Nice place you have here.
