Voted for Three Weeks In Paradise in the end as I do have a bit of a soft spot for the Wally Week series.

I've just noticed that They Stole A Million isn't on the list, was it not considered good enough or just a case that, until now, nobody mentioned it?
I don't remember seeing it. If I missed it, I do apologise.

Curious that whenever I read 'They stole a million' I think of the compilation of similar title :D

And I think of "they stole half a million" ;-)

On topic though: once again too many great games in this bunch, Thanatos, Trash Man and Through the Trap Door were in the running, but finally I had to vote for the 8 bit grand daddy of GTA - Turbo Esprit!

TLL, Tau Ceti, Three Weeks in Paradise, Thunderbirds, Time-Gate, Trans Am, Trashman. Another tough choice, but the one game i can still go back to over and over is Trapdoor. Don Priestley for president.

I don't have anything cool to put here, so i'll just be off now to see a priest with yeast stuck between his teeth and his friend called Keith who's a hairpiece thief...

So torn between Target Renegade and Trashman! Two of my all-time Speccy faves. In the end I went with Trashman, although I expect TR will most likely win out in the end. Honorary mention to Trapdoor, which is also absolutely superb!

Some fantastic games in that list, but I opted for Trashman in the end. Mainly because there's been nothing really like it since, the only way I know of experiencing what it is like to be a Waste Collection Technician with household members making references to 1980s computers.

Montague Street was also a street near where I lived and had a paper round on and it coincidentally looked very similar to "Montague Road" in Trashman. Looking at it on Google Maps, it looks even more like it, I can just imagine a little 8-bit trashman going in each of the houses!

But doing a search on Google Maps for all the streets in Trashman (Montague Road, Pulteney Road, Lyncombe Vale, Widcombe Hil, Landsdown Roadl), it looks like it may have been set in Bath!

Yeah, I live nearby in Bristol and have been intending for years to make a Speccy pilgrimage to Bath to visit them all.

(Not going to be this year though, you can hardly move through the streets at Christmas time..)
