CPC Game Reviews - 2,000 games reviewed!
« on: 19:17, 10 May 20 »
Today (10th May 2020) CPC Game Reviews reached a milestone, with 2,000 Amstrad CPC games reviewed! It took almost five years to reach 1,000 reviews, and as I got older, left university and real life increasingly got in the way (as I'm sure it has for the large majority of users on this forum), I felt I would never reach 2,000 reviews ‒ but I've done it at last! It took 21 years but I got there in the end.

I said at the beginning of 2016 that I would restrict my CPC activities, but thanks to the ongoing lockdown due to COVID-19, I have returned to writing reviews and tidying up the NVG archive in order to maintain my sanity. :laugh: I've managed to write 15 reviews during the last two months, and Robert Small has also contributed 6 reviews during this time.

I hope those of you who have visited CPC Game Reviews over the many years it's been online continue to do so. Many thanks to all of you. :)

Oh yes, we will continue to visit your fine site, and I can say that for us it's one of the very best CPC websites ever, and I know the CPC since the 1985'ies. Together with Gryzor's great CPC wiki forum here, these two sites together deliver everything I could wish for my CPC universe.

Nich, thank you so you much for your incredibly amount of loving work you put into your website and the CPC during all the years. Very much appreciated, really. Based on your fine reviews and archive we tend to download "new" CPC games and programs and play or use them, well, my wife, my children, yes all of them, and one day, I hope my grand-children, too! (Emulators is the most important software at all, isn't it?)

All the best to your and your loved ones, and to all you fine CPC users here on this forum.
I send heartily greetings from Germany to England. Stay healthy.
Otto

Haha! :laugh: Once you start reading one or two reviews, you'll want to read another one, and another one, and another one... and you'll find it difficult to pull yourself away from it, and before you know it, two hours will have passed by!

That's it exactly!
I spent a decade working night-shift and when the opportunity was there I would work my way through the games I knew and the games I didn't (most of the site) - thoroughly enjoyed it and will continue to do so - a great site @Nich and I thank you very much.  :)

Nothing to do with both of Cargosoft's games (that you programmed) receiving 10/10 ratings, then? :P
