    Yep played the shit out of that. 4 of us playing on the 34cm telly in my room. I was always Odd Job cause he was so short most merkins would shoot over your head.

    Also brings back fond memories of putting a new game in and playing right away. No 60gb+ installs and release day updates - a quick blow on the bottom of the cartridge, slap it in and off ya go.

    Your mates always accusing you of screen watching, as if there was anyway to avoid it on such a small screen.

    Moreso these numbers in our joint.

    Thumb slide wind... :wink:

    Funny enough, we still had “selfies” with these, so whoever reckons Paris Hilton invented “selfies” is kidding themselves.

    Just not as many, because you know, ... film and chemists and such...

    Taking a whole bunch of pics, hand in the film and pay. Pick them up and 99% of photos are out of focus or blurry.

    California Games.

    Good stuff.

    Was more of a Santa Cruz guy myself, but was known to “represent” Ocean Pacific when the “planets aligned”.

    Could cut a mean “horse shoe into a jester” in Footbag when required.

    “Seagull for dinner!” we’d cry!

    Or was it breakfast?

    I need to lie down nooooo....

    There is one at Minto on Campbelltown Road.

    Did the same thing at uni with the one at Kings Park. Alternated between that and the all you can eat buffet at Rosehill Bowling Club.
