    I dowloaded a Nokia Snake emulator for my Nexus 5X. It came with a number of Nokia Model 'overlays' which was nice, so it looked like the keypad and screen of your favourite model. I didn't play it for long though.

    I also downloaded 'Dancehall sound FX' so that I could play blaring air horns and laser sound effects to drown out people talking in meetings if I didn't like what they were saying.

    It also has voice FX so I can play a stab of someone yelling 'Lick it up rudebwoy', 'ease up rassclat' and 'REWIND SELECTA'. I have yet to find appropriate usage for these but they amuse me regardless.

    My Amiga 1200 has gotten some love recently, but used it mostly for AMOS though. Have played some Monkey Island II, as well as Moonstone and Nitro. Beside this, I've started using the PS2 a bit more again with Baldur's Gate and some other games.

    The fact that PS is now considered retro blows me away. As you said in another thread, time really does fly.

    It's apx. 16-17 years since the PS2 was released and that is incredible if you ask me. When I play on this console it does not feel that old, hehe.

    Good grief, that does seem like a long time ago. I remember buying my PS2 (from Blockbuster Video, trivia fans) and thinking it was the absolute business. I had some good times with that console, although there are only a small handful of games I would really care to revisit.

    A lot of the games that I enjoyed as multiplayer would not be the same without the original group of players, which have long since dispersed. My youth is gone, man, and it aint coming back

    Thr PS2 had one of, if not the largest catalogue of games released. As a big RPG fan there are still so many amazing games I have to play on the system.

    It's architecture is the reason the PS2 hasn't dated that badly. The PS1 however is starting to show its age in terms of early 3D graphics but still some amazing games to play.

    I think the term retro is quite loose. Some consider the Xbox retro, some even the 360, but that's way too new for retro in my view. Even Dreamcast isn't really retro enough yet. But this could be more the fact that game development really hasn't pushed ahead in any way near the constant evolution it did in the days when we jumped from 8bit to 16bit and then to 32 bit. Other than graphics getting more complex and photorealistic the genres and game design really hadn't changed that much since the original Playstation.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Remember the PS2 RPG list we created on here? I still have so many of them to play. I tested each for at least an hour after downloading and burning them, but not more. I still have a shortlist of RPGs I want to play through before the others.

    Thr problem is other games keep getting released too. So much to play, so little time!
