Tie Fighter.

It's the only one I really miss. Unfortunately the entire genre's been dead for a decade.

lostangel: First games were pong on a hanimex console(in black and white)

Ha,Ha of course forgot about pong, small/big bat , fast/slow / footy/tennis/squash etc.

I think my gaming peaked at Doom and Flight Simulator, quite happy with a game of solataire or frozen bubble these days.

Give it twenty years I`ll be Ga-ga loopy enough to go back to pong :-(
