On Channel 5...

Just talking about the game Elite and how it started the 3D game industry.

The memories of the BBC B and how many hours trading, upgrading my ship and the best in game radar going.


Anyone else play Elite?

I want to go find it and play it right now...

Heck, makes me hanker for Wing Commander and Privateer too...

And almost makes me want to play Eve Online (which I guess is the nearest modern equivalent these days).

I used to love Elite. Though never really got the hang of docking without using the docking computer. Despite it being so expensive you had to mooch around the game for ages before you got to buy it.

fond memories of cut-scenes and full motion video with dodgy acting/voice talent. Gabriel Knight 2 anyone?

I still remember that summer, going up to London to the Acorn User show.

And later in the holidays, staggering down to the kitchen for a snack and discovering that I still had crosshair sights burned into my retinas.
