What computer games are you playing?
Monkey Island 1 & 2 - Remastered
They run and play great on the laptop/tablet. Genuinely LOL funny too. I can see why they're classics.

I'm rubbish at point and click adventure games though so I've been using the hint system so much I may have well just watched I YouTube walkthrough of the whole game. Still I'm enjoying them which is what matters.

Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna)

A nice and relaxing game. If you imagine Kate Bush's album 50 Words for Snow was turned into a game it would be like this.

I'm thinking about getting the Retron 5 for some retro gaming.

It does all regions of NES, SNES, MEGADRIVE, GAMEBOY, GBA & GBC.

IT COMES WITH AN iffy BT controller but it even has controller ports to cover original controllers for the above about £120.

From what I have read the emulation is pretty ropey, much better to get the original console and a few good games, or get the SNES classic which is out soon.

I have a Super Famicom and Neo Geo and have tried various emu machines but none are like the real thing.

I have seen lots of poor comments about these types of machines but I watched quite a long in depth review on YouTube and it was very complimentary

I didn't go for the Retron 5. I've very little interest in NES & SNES (I had Master System & Megadrive) so I've bought a test Megadrive 2 for £30. It comes with 3 games that I prob wouldn't buy but played a massive amount way back
PGA TOUR GOLF
NHL HOCKEY. I virtually wore out the cart of EA HOCKEY.
FIFA SOCCER. The first one. I preordered this when it came out.

My first purchase will prob be Castle of Illusion.

If retro gaming is your thing then a Raspberry Pi is all you need/hard to beat...

As Steve pointed out above I'm not 100% about emulation. I'd rather have the carrridge For now ?

There's some really nice looking products from Colourware.

If you have a Switch. Look at this. Expensive though.

Very nice :-) I am trying to collect all the Japanese Disney Super Nintendo games, there are quite a few  and the ones I have played so far are great.

Just added the HD remake of this to my Steam list. I love lighthearted platform games and missed this one a few years ago.

The remake of Castle of Illusion looks nice.
It was available for a while as a download for Xbox but removed before I knew about it. Also on iOS but I don't really like games on iPad. It's not on Apple TV.

oday is Amazon Prime Day.
£180 for a 500gb PS4. 2 controllers plus OVERWATCH & CRASH BANDICOOT N SANE TRILOGY.

Seems pretty good. I almost got one, but not sure I really need a PS4.

I've just got an original PS3 60 gb (the one that also does PS1 & PS2). Came with 12 really good games all complete& boxed (I'd happily play any of them). For £90.

This model of PS3 is the one with reliability issues so it might not make it to old age, but if you said the games average a fiver (some are more) then the console was only 30.

Yoshi's island on the Super Nintendo arrived last night from Beijing, USA version. My favourite game of all time, the perfect game! Until now I have only had the Japanese version so it's great to see what the pop up boxes say.

Spelunky

This is the best platform game that I've ever played. At first it seems pretty typical of the genre and for the first couple of hours it will just kick your arse over an over again but somewhere around four or five hours in it all starts to 'click' and it all starts to make sense. Around ten hours in it's now become one of the deepest games that I've ever played and has a sort of emergive gameplay style that just keeps on surprising you with new elements and I've still barely scratched the surface.

Have a look at the steam reviews. Most of them are people who have played for hundreds of hours and say that it's the best game ever.

Really funny game. Definitely an RPG lite. It's my first RPG since Final Fantasy 9. 
I've made a beginners mistake. I've just used all my cash on a Level 8 weapon when I'm only level 3. 

Also just started the first Uncharted. 20% done.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut

I gave up early on with Deus Ex the first time round because I was just running and gunning all the way. This time I'll play it properly and go for a more non-violent tactical approach to see if it's more enjoyable that way.

I've just downloaded Final Fantasy 7.8 & 9 for £3.99 each from the PlayStation Store.

I've never played FF8 but I gave my life over to FF7. Not sure when I'll start them as they're addictive games but thought I'd get them while on sale
