And the winner is MEEEEEEE!, err sorry wrong poll.
you have spoken and you have decided that Elite was the best game of 1989, although it only won by a single vote. I can see the next years being just as close. Thanks to everyone for voting and thanks for those who left comments. Do I hear a 'roll on 1990?' or is shall I do KG's idea of best game of the 80's?
I think I'll do best game of the 80's (less typing on that one)
