OMG! These were the days. I loved my ZX Spectrum.

What do you use to record the gaming footage, please? I've tried using Virtualdub but just get a black screen when trying to record what's on the PC. Thanks.

These were my favourite games that I played over and over again through my teens. The tunes in the video are my favourite 128k tracks - I challenge you all to name them!!!

I really enjoyed that compilation Boyo , is that your personal favourite 50 or a selection of 50 superb spectrum games (the exception being Bobby bearing was mistakenly entered instead of spindizzy !!). A few arcade conversions such as Bomb jack and Hypersports / Daleys decathlon wouldn't go amiss , Superb video though , i could watch it over and over again , brilliant.

Interesting video boyo as you have obviously dug deep into the ZX archives and not just gone for the 'blockbuster' equivalent eg, the later titles (you have probably stated in the compilation, but I have no sound on my PC as yet, so I'm just guessing?). Tho I was still very young in the early 80's, I can still remember the cramp kicking in after a few attempts (afternoons) at 'Agent X'. One can also spot influences too as in 'Atic Attac', for that has the same view/dynamics as 'Zelda - A Link To The Past' on the SNES. Now I recall the game 'Booty' as one of the first I ever played on a Speccy (along with 'Spike'), my first gaming experience being that of my belov'd 'Frogger', 'The King', 'Pengon' & "Cuthbert' titles on my Tandy 32k...It's great having 'Skool Daze' featured too, and being quite an ironic term really as I actually missed many of my own to play such a game! "The Great Esacpe' was also a fantastic game, free-roaming (well, within the confines of barbed-wire of course) adventure where my brother & I would just end up walking around etc or even, getting stuck in that tunnel. And good to see a 'Dizzy' title in there also. Codemasters did (from time to time) produce some gem's but, I had to laugh at the fact on the reverse of thier packaging, they always used to big-up their own games. The Darling/Oliver Twins combo had a good thing going there. Anyway, I have said enough. A good little compilation boyo.

 Hi boyo, I will give it a go but it may take me a while (I have an 11 month old daughter who is a big distraction). I will see if I can put a list together for the Master System, although 50 may be pushing it a bit.

 HI WhizzBang - how about you creating the next list of 50 with your choices and I will get those games onto the site
