I have been playing video games since I was two years old, getting my first toddler taste of pixel black magic back when my mum and dad brought home a Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in 1991.

Released: October 3rd, 1989

Pop_box_artMy parents never got us a console. They reasoned quite sensibly that if we had one we’d probably play computer games. The only thing in the house to play games on was the family PC my dad intended us to do homework on that he bought from Dixons about one week before Windows 95 came out. This unfortunate timing meant that right from day seven it was only good enough for playing obsolete games.It also meant that ours was probably the only computer in the world actually affected by the Millennium Bug.

When Jon asked me to write an article for his blog about a game I love, I thought several things:

  1. Who on Earth does Jon Gracey think he is, setting me homework? Still, I guess I’ll have to do it, I can’t just tell him to get bent. That would seem rude.
