Ah, EFMS makes the internet worthwhile! As for suggestions for future episodes - how about a full on Bioware retrospective from Baldur's Gate to ME3? There's a lot of great stuff in there...

Nice work Danny. I didn't know anything about any of that, but I still found it interesting. Game series suggestion: Prince of Persia.

@dannyodwyer Danny, thank you for putting this together, I'm glad that one of my favorite ever developers has been given the EFMS honours. Cannon Fodder and SWOS were two of the first games I ever seriously played and was the cause of much sibling rivalry for me too. I have returned to them from time to time over the last 15 or so years (still got the Acorn Achimedes I used to play them on somewhere) Cannon Fodder has my all time favourite game music and it was great to finally hear from Jon where it came from. A request for the future, in my memory CF and SWOS are hand in hand with Speedball II and Magic Pockets, so I'd love to see a Bitmap Brothers episode sometime. Thanks again, though you're starting to make me feel old with this 'memory lane' stuff :p

You just confirmed you're a man of good taste.

A bunch of mates and myself have been getting together on a Wednesday night for 20 odd years now, we generally play games. The game that started this Wednesday tradition for us was Sensible Soccer, not just the best football game ever made but one of the best games ever made.

So many good memories of that game, cheers Danny :)

@GarGx1 That's amazing :D Myself and my bro play every few years, and we love it. But to think you guys started with Sensi and are still at it - that's awesome.

The first time I heard about Sensible was Cannon Fodder. I remember it on the Sega Genesis console. Rented it, liked it. It's one of the most popular games on GOG.

@crazylooser2003 Arguably the greatest game ever made. The unofficial patch fixes it nicely.

@Mega_Loser Psygnosis (pre SCE Liverpool), was a great developer Loved Shadow of the Beast on Amiga and Megadrive. Great music and one of the best uses of parallax scrolling for its time. RIP SCE Liverpool.

One of my favourite developer for sure ! Sensible soccer is the best footbal game ever made and again there were Mega-lo-mania and Cannon fodder as beautiful games. Those were the dayz ... We were organizing tournaments in our appartments, 10-15 of us, playing sensible soccer until the end of time.

This was a great episode of Mount stupid.

Good show Danny and very informative. I've actually played some of these games, yet i never really knew about the guys behind it. Always nice to be informed.

Also, for ideas on episodes for EFMS; i don't know if you've already covered this so disregard if you have: How about an episode talking about how games, and game studio.s, are sometimes started from free community mods for other games.

For example, Torn Banner studios released Chivalry: medieval warfare a few months ago, and that started out as a Half-life mod, it gained popularity, and the guys behind it made a full on release with the game. Other examples like DOTA 2 as well, and i'm pretty sure you know a lot more than i do.

Could be enlightening.

Sensible Soccer was the only football game I've ever enjoyed, cause I generally hate sports games, but this was something else.

Do you play console games on Random Encounter? If so you should play Guardian Heroes on the Saturn.

Thanks Danny!!

Very emotional stuff for and old Amiga gamer like myself.

Mega-Lo-Mania is one of my favourite games but I think I've played every single game in that video. Including the football board game xD

I was wondering why you kept showing Speedball II from Bitmap Brothers. Glad I got an explanation at the end. had no idea they're working together.

I have to say though sensi soccer was NOT my favourite football game on Amiga. I was more of a KickOff fan :P

It was sort of like a Stones vs. Beatles at the time if I remember.

This is probably the best show on Gamespot.

@couly @Saketume You're likely to make an effigy of me and burn it in the town centre to a pitchfork wielding crowd but, I hated Kick Off. I kept thinking I was just wrong cos all the magazines were giving the games 90% and 9/10's.

@-Jonce-

Hehe yeah that's how I remember it. Everyone was so passionate about those two games.

It's a bit like the Mario vs Sonic debate of the 90's

Man, that brings back memories, I remember being addicted to Sensible Soccer, and sometimes I loaded Wizball just to listen to the music.
