I'm not feeling very Christmasy this year, but this really cheered me up, thanks. I'd love to see more of these short-burst co-op play-throughs. I'm convinced there's mesmerising black magic bubbling beneath the surface of Captain Planet; it's an awful game, yet like you I gave it plenty of my attention as a kid. I still have no idea why. It has something.

Something else I'd like to see in 2016 is more coverage of late-era Amiga games that many of us have never heard of because we'd moved onto PCs and stopped buying Amiga mags by then. There's very little commentary on this kind of thing on YouTube; it's all silent gameplay footage if anything at all.

Thanks for the video . There aren't many videos of mates playing games like we used to back in the day.

Great video, I really enjoyed watching this. I remember playing micro machines with my mates when I was a teenager! Chaos Engine looks really cool, but I didn't get a chance to play that.

Completely agree with you on Captain Planet 110%.

I have long standing tradition (dating back to the early 1990's) of playing James Pond II at Christmas.

Anyway, nice video!

Damn, same here - I keep going back to it (finished it again last year for the... Nth time!) even if I know that it's an awful game after all
