STUART'S PANORAMIC WORLD     MASTERTRONIC - WHAT IF?     TREKKIE DAD AND SUPER SOPHIE

The random ramblings of a Star Trek-obsessed schools ICT Systems Manager who likes a good moan.
This is a place where I can whinge about life, and express my love of my family, 80's music, retro computer gaming (especially on my Commodore 64),
 oh and Star Trek. I'm very open with my opinions and I like a good moan. If you don't like what I say, then you might want to consider not reading this blog.

Happy 20th Tomb Raider

Friday 25th October 1996 - I remember that day well.  Immediately after finishing work, I went straight over to Electronics Boutique in Basildon Town Centre to buy this highly anticipated game, and once I got home and fired up the PlayStation, I was addicted and didn't put it down until I had finished it.
 
What's tough to believe is that this in now considered by me to be 'retro', and yet once you get over the blocky graphics, the game still plays very nicely today.
 
It's also another reminder of how old I am feeling/getting.  I was only 19 years old at the time when I, along with millions of others started playing with Lara (and saying goodbye to what little social life I had at the time). 
 
Ahhh, the memories.
 
Happy 20th Tomb Raider and Lara Croft.
