Other Tidbits/Comments

What's the distinction of a classic game to me anyway? I'll play anything from Asteroids to Unreal Tournament as long as it's fun. I play classic games cuz they're fun and only collect games that are fun to play. I guess I've played "classic" games after the Crash on my Atari computers, the best ones being the remakes on the ST's with revamped graphics, sounds and gameplay {think Jeff Minter and Llamatron}. I "offically" got into classic game collecting when I wanted to do a remake of Yars' Revenge for the ST. Sadly, I never did get to get it off the ground...but hey, I get to play the original and all the others again! :)
