1. I am...
... a Scottish lad in his early 30's. Its mighty cold up here, y'know!
I have lived in the same city all my life and I love it here. There's low crime,
friendly people but not much to do: all our arcades just have gamblers and
not a single video game.
Been working in retail most of my life, and it seems to agree with me. I have a few physical problems, and some people might say a few mental ones too! (You know who you are!). I have a 2-year old son who I will mould into the world's best games player - as long as he likes video games (coz his Dad is crap at them!).
2. I got into MAME...
... back when I got my first ever PC. I bought myself a modem the following year
and only just started surfing the net when I read in a magazine about Dave's Classics and
paid it a visit. I didn't find mame on that OTHER site!
I first tried MegaDrive emulation, but then came across MAME and I've been hooked
on all types of emulation ever since.
I've now been using MAME for the past 5 years now, and the emulation of games just
get better and better.
3. I love playing...
... anything by SEGA, as I've always been a big Sega fan, so their games are a must, but especially AfterBurner II. I must have pumped hundreds of ten pences into that game when I was younger! Outrun sticks in my head a lot too... trying to
play the stand-up version with a broken ankle wasn't easy!
Star Wars and Defender are two other games that really stick in my head. What other titles? Hmmm... lemme think...Roc N Rope, Shinobi, Slap fight and I can't forget the classic Karate Champ. I nearly forgot the game that gave me my nickname - MORTAL KOMBAT!!!
4. I would like to say to Nicola and the MAME team...
... thanks for capturing my childhood and placing it in a folder called MAME on my C: drive :) Keep up the excellent emulation work peeps, and KEEP IT FREE!!!
