Retro games and rose tinted specs.


Had an old friend visit me last night, had a chat about old times and the things we used to get up to when we were at school together. Pretty cool to be honest as nice to chat about old times, you always remember them with those rose tinted specs

I used to play a lot of computer games way back then and we chatted about a couple of classics. Things like the Wild Bunch, Viking Raiders, Journeys End, Jet Set Willy, Manic Miner, Chuckie Egg, Jet Pac.. You get the idea..

Anyway I collect old consoles and computers, although I'm about to offload most of it to get some dosh, so I dug out a Spectrum and loaded up Super Cycle .. Blimey those rose tinted specs certainly do make things seem *much* better.. And to think I paid 2.99 for this game about 18 years ago!

What I'm getting at is that you always think back to the old loves you lost or missed and wonder if it could have been or perhaps you use those rose tinted specs and think it really was better than it was.. Who knows.. One things for certain.. Some of the old games really suck
