    Scott's piece about being left behind by changing controls was a true eye-opener for me. It's explained my own evolving taste in games over the years as well as my long and abiding dislike of the...

    I picked Gyruss, which was great. But if Tempest were there I would have gone with that. Assuming Tempest is space. It is very abstract but I always thought of it as being in space.

    It's the Dreamcast for me. I'm convinced that all of the stars were in perfect alignment when Sega created that one. Great hardware, brilliant games and you can run homebrew on an unmodified console.

    Is this Room 101 experience the literary sort in which you strap cages full of rats to their faces or the radio/television one that's the opposite of Desert Island Discs?
