1. I am...
Eldio from the UK, born in 1979. A big fan of music spanning the decades...
I can also play some mean guitar.
I have been into games all my life, a fascination that began around the age of
four. My brother had just got a Dragon32 home computer and we would spend
many an hour playing Chucky Egg, Bouldercrash and Manic Miner. Through the
years I could be found feeding cash into arcade machines (my earliest memory
being groups of people surrounding a Kung Fu Master cabinet) while keeping a
keen home computer / console collection going. My console fascination
eventually filtered out when PCs became meaty but I still have many relics
from the past in some form of bizarre working museum.
2. I got into MAME...
I stumbled across this particular emulator around the late part of 1998
while looking for versions of an arcade game I used to play called Heavy
Unit. I was also looking for some Commodore64 games which I thought were
lost forever due to tape wear. If memory serves me correctly, I found the
MAME32 site first before venturing off into MAME.NET and MAMEWORLD.NET.
Sometime later I discovered there was a newsgroup called alt.games.mame
where helpful and similar people could be found.
3. I love playing...
Any game really. A game with gameplay is a game I play. You can find a few
of these in MAME : )
194X, Track & Field, PacMan, Altered Beast, Hard Drivin', Arkanoid,
Asteroids, Street Fighter(s), Astro Blaster, Tetris, Bubble Bobble, Shinobi,
Centipede, Mortal Kombat(s), Contra, Double Dragon, Space Invaders, Dig Dug,
Monkey King (DK), Toki, Frogger, Galaga(s), Gauntlet, Wonder Boy and a few
4. I would like to say to Nicola and the MAME team...
Thank you for all the effort and immortalising decades of arcade related
shenanigans. The time that has been invested into this project is ensuring
that the all time classics are not lost forever and a great deal of people
appreciate the need to archive, record and emulate the arcade scene which
has most certainly had a huge impact on society.
