The Greatest Spectrum Game
In October 1991 thru to February 1992 Your Sinclair ran a feature on the Top 100 ZX Spectrum games of all time. Following on from the this list in September 1993 Your Sinclair posted the readers Top 100 games. Both lists significantly differ in the ordering of the top 100 and while I personally don’t agree with either choice it is interesting to have a quick look.
Below then is the Top 20 games from both lists, I’ll let you have a look at this list before I give you my own personal Greatest Sinclair ZX Spectrum game of all time. It’s difficult to pick the best, the elite, the pinnacle, the greatest of anything but for me nailing my top one game on the ZX Spectrum was really easy as their was no question in my mind about my choice, it’s not just the greatest game on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum – it’s the greatest game of all time. Forget Skryim, Halo, Mass Effect and Wii Sports(!!) none of these games can come close to being as good as this game. Never, ever.
