    I was super stoked cos I had enjoyed 7 immensely. The series really spiralled downhill after that and the modern "spiritual" spin-offs sucked balls big time.

    I see 8 is available on Origin, but it's compatible with Windows XP and Vista. Not sure if it will run on Win 7.

    Yip, I skipped Windows 10 and kept 7 as I wasn't sure if a lot of my games would run on 10.

    I'd say super mario bros as it's one of the 1st games I played.

    I'm sure it will, if not you can run it via DOSBox or something similar.

    Can't remember, been ages since I fired it up...and no time for old games these days. I keep 'em in fond memory

    This was my first introduction to home gaming in 1980-1983. My friend had one and used to go to his house in the holidays to play. Then in 1991 we got our first home PC which came with Duke Nukem and have been gaming since then.
