Does anyone remember Tracksuit manager? That may have been 1990
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Yep. Or the original Football Manager from 1982. Stick men with giant goals.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
You can get that on the Android play store. I'm friends with the guy who made it, Kevin Toms, on Facebook. Proper nice bloke.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Had Football Manager 2 as well. Wasn't quite as good. Then I seem to remember a WC90 version that had you answering questions before the game.

Leisuresuit Larry too 😉
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Was that one slightly...risque? I think that might be the game I always used to try and buy at my local Computerstore, but the sales assistants would just laugh and tell me no
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I had one called How To Be A Complete Basterd

I had a grand prix one which you had to race round and change the tyres yourself during a pit stop, but can't remember it's name. Had the full season and all the drivers and teams of the era though. Pretty good for its time.

Emlyn Hughes was another great game, and was 10x better on the Amiga as well

Haha yeah it was a text based game wasn't it? My mates brother had it and I remember you'd have to go round and build up your Basterd-meter or something being as dickish as you could

Routine tyre change only!

That's right. I think it was at a party. You could put cling film on the toilet and stuff.

School Dayz as well! What a game that was.

Back then when I was 8 I rewatched the 20 or so VHS movies I’d recorded from the TV over and over again, so not much would have changed. A lot of kicking a football against a wall in the garden too.

I had Holed Out on the Acorn Electron. Two hours a round took and if the cassette crashed you'd lose your whole round.

Also Soccer Boss which had made up names for players such as Boam and Richard. Very basic but very playable.

I was in RAF in the Falklands in late 90/early 91...It might not have got there

My mates a great game which, if I had to give it a name, would be called ‘Who can make the loudest noise by twaaating the ball off the garage doors’.

I’m sure we weren’t the only ones.

I’m not far off coronavirus 90

The only games console I’ve got at home is an n64. Had a blast on The World Is Not Enough the other day as Goldeneye hasn’t aged too well!

I’ve got FIFA too... the 99 version with Denis Bergkamp on it.

I thought I’d pretty much completed it after the whale level...only for there to be literally 75% of the gane to go and it just got better and better. Brilliant game.

Was iss the one where you’d tackle on the halfway line and the commentator would be shouting for a penalty?! Think I’ve got that somewhere!

Had a blast on 1080 a couple of months back with a mate after we’d been out. I’m absolutely 5hite at that one now 😂

Been weighing up whether to start Ocarina or Super Mario whilst in isolation. No rush to decide tho I’m a man of leisure at the moment

Yeah that’s the one I think, commentary was awful.

Ocarina for me though that 3D Mario was brilliant too.

Sensible soccer was my jam . Great game with not so accurate player names

Erik Contona

Recently bought the pre loaded retropie with thousands of old games. Quite hilarious

Striker wasnt too bad, but Lemmings was my favourite then

Anyone remember the arcade classic called black dragon. Was also known as black tiger.
Absolutely loved that game
