Gaming Arcade up top, with flash versions of old classics games can be played, and maybe be able to hold a RVG Tournaments etc.. here at the site? could be good, as there is some fantastic remakes out there. But I wouldn't go over board with them.. too many games to play = No posting activities.

Another Ieda that's come to mind, what a review section for IOS retro related remakes, there are allot of classic games been now remade for Ipad / Itouch & Iphone, say a review of a game eg. battle Squadron (Amiga) has been ported to IOS device, and compare it to the original one?

just a simply Idea of a V.S. review on this subject

This is more of a request for content but do we have a.beginners guide to x.thread or section.

What I mean if I wanted to start collecting Jaguar for.instance, why price should I be paying, what dealers are reputable, what issues should I be were of etc etc

I know we have 'best game' threads but this more of factual info if that makes sense.

Happy to add my own knowledge where I can and apologies if we have this already and I've missed it!

Actually a great idea. Perhaps we should knock up a Buyers Guide.

Yeah, that's a great idea!  There is so much conflicting information out there, and so many unscrupulous sources, that it can be a minefield.  At least if it is written and maintained by members of this site, then it is trust worthy!

I like the arcade idea, most forums do have these and yes, it must be limited. Maybe you could have a small number of games which you change bi-monthly or quarterly, effectively creating a new competition each time.

The buyers guide is very interesting and I saw there is some interest for this in the dedicated thread, good luck.

I'm sure some of you have your own sites and blogs etc so a list of approved/affiliated sites may be helpful.
