Ahh.. the eighties, a time of awesome toys, shell suits, bad hair and the best films ever. We made mix tapes, we skated on multi-coloured roller boots, we wore He-Man or Get-Along-Gang t-shirts, we stuck spokey-dokies on our bikes and watched Going Live!.. Life was good.
But something else came along at the start of this great decade, something that would change many of our lives forever. It came from Sinclair, and brought us into a whole new world- the world of video gaming. It was the ZX Spectrum. It captured our hearts, destroyed our interest in the outside world and relinquished any chance of a social life. The cassette based games could be painfully slow to load but we loved it, which is why there are so many emulators out there now, 33 years after the original console release.
If you want to relive some small chunks of your childhood, or even show your own kids where gaming started for you, check out this browser based version which has a whopping 200+ ZX Spectrum games for you to enjoy and get nostalgic over, because although consoles and games move on, nothing ever compares to that first game that hooked you.
