Of course! That game manages to capture the most tense atmosphere ever, it's terrifying. And I never even made it off the first screen.

I have a fondness for a game called 'golf'. Pretty sure it was written in BASIC and was bought from a small ad in the Sinclair User. It was the only computer game I ever played with my Dad.
Are you refering to Handicap Golf by CRL, perhaps?

I remember it was very looooong to load!

Glider Rider is one of those games I couldn't get it back in the day and I've only played it on a emulator.

I would have enjoyed it a lot in my Spectrum, definitely.

There's games I've played more than any of the ones mentioned so far, like Gobble A Ghost, Gremlins and Grand National, but I don't think they'll trouble the scorers when it comes to the final count.

Haven't played The Great Escape so I'll need to have a look.

Yeah, Grand National is a game I played a lot, interesting, but I don't think it would be a good contender in this thread.

Gyroscope for me. Once its up (unless some huge omission gets remembered in the meantime) that'll be my vote.

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...

It'll be a hard fight between Green Beret and the Great Escape.

But I'll be wrong as always! :D
