Copy II Plus FTW. I didn't mention the Apple IIc we had as well. I was recently thinking about all the time I spent playing Silent Service on the IIc, so I went and looked the game back up. I never realized it was one of Sid Meier's first games. No wonder it was so good.

I really liked the Mario Tennis games.

But Virtua Tennis is far & away the best. Loved that game.

Super Spike was awesome, but it was no MLB Baseball.

Don't know what they go for these days, but when it came out I could never understand what could possibly justify the ridiculous prices for games and hardware for that system. Just didn't seem like anything special.

Was a sucker and bought Hardline. More fun than the Beta - feels way more like CounterStrike than Battlefield. I honestly don't think that's a bad thing either.

Spoiler:
I can neither confirm nor deny the speculation here..... but I will say that development on MGSV:TPP has been an utter debacle. They just can't get the thing to work. They submitted a goldmaster candidate a month before I left that was so bug riddled they got a formal reprimand from Sony. Apparently KJP thought they could save money by having Sony's people more or less QA the game; Sony told them to eff off and to never try something like that again or they'd terminate the Publisher License Agreement. That's not an idle threat; it would mean that Konami - not just Kojima - would no longer be permitted to publish PlayStation games.

As regards the Kojima LA studio..... that's actually where we had our last company Christmas party before I left. It's a fantastic facility, truly world class. It occupies the old Howard Hughes campus in Playa del Rey, right next to YouTube, so all of the interior decor is aviation themed; apparently, the studio boss' office used to be Howard Hughes' bedroom and is furnished with super sleek 'Aviator' furniture from Restoration Hardware. It cost severalty millions of dollars to outfit, including well over half a million for the 20-seat screening room. (I did all the contractor agreements) But having the Christmas party there was a solid kick in the jewels for us at KDE-US. We were undergoing a massive change in our physical office space, getting rid of cubicles and going to the 'open' aesthetic using cheap IKEA tables, there was open hostility towards management. Morale at the company was at an all-time low......... and we had our party at this brand new multi-million dollar studio that WE paid for (intra-company finance shenanigans, FTW!), the result of which meant we could not have holiday bonuses or COLA raises. Seriously, the frickin' monitor stands at KJP-LA probably cost more than five of those IKEA tables, and each workstation had at least three of them. The etched glass doors at the entrance cost close to $10k a piece, and there were two sets of them. The kitchen had quartz countertops, tableware from Crate & Barrel, and a $3,000 espresso machine.

Tom, the studio head, and Tomoko (his coordinator) are both quality people, and I miss working with them. But trust me when I say that Konami as a video game publisher is not long for this world. I see them going the way of Atari within the next two years.

Updated word is that HQ was not anticipating the public response to their moves and were unprepared for the kind of backlash that's coming their way. Color me not surprised.

I feel like a good portion of the Japanese companies in general don't anticipate the reaction to their moves. I'm thinking of Nintendo's stupid Youtube policy & such.

Are people posting these in order they got them? If so, there are a lot of people that went from NES to Sega which I don't understand.
