1. I am...

... Mark Johnson from Blackburn, UK. I'm 30 going on 12. I have background in Electrical/Electronic engineering and currently work as a Software Engineer.

I have been involved with computers since the early 80s when I got my first ZX Spectrum. I then went to on to own a C+4, C64, Amiga 500 and 1200 and finally onto PCs. I always wanted games consoles, but they were always out of reach.

I did get a hand-held space invaders (it had a top score of 199 with three different level and really annoying sound effects) and I loved it until my brother sold it!

2. I got into MAME...

... sometime in the late nineties whilst bored at work one lunch time. I began looking for a version of Kung-Fu master to play (C64 version never had the same thrill as the arcade) as I was in the mood to give someone a good kicking and also Exciting Soccer! Well, I found Dave's Classic Gaming site and then MAME - my 14.4K modem didn't know what had hit it!!

3. I love playing...

... My favourite games are Kung Fu Master, Exciting Soccer (I got into in Spain one year on holiday) and Star Wars. I also like playing some of the newer fighting games such as Mortal Combat.

When I can get time I like to go through all games and pick one I've never played before - and there are plenty of them!

4. I would like to say to Nicola and the MAME team...

... Top Job! I've never known so many people be so happy with a piece of software before. You're making many middle-aged people feel like kids again, as well as giving some of the kids a blast of nostalgia.
