Athletic World and Stadium Events were the PAL games.

I think the closest game to Dancing Stage on the NES is Dance Aerobics which was released in Japan & America:

Who needs DDR when you have a NES! ;D

Hello - I'm happy to be number 97 on this board, more power to its elbow. I'm Andy, I live in Surrey together with my wife, 4-year-old son, bump-to-be, and a large number of items of dusty electronics. I've been in love with games and games hardware since I clapped eyes on a Boot Hill coin-op in an outward-bounds course - I was rubbish at it, beaten by all comers, had to come back late when nobody was around. I remember it towering over me, so I must've been pretty young - probably 12 or so.

Now I content myself with a couple of coin-ops, a bunch of JAMMA boards, a couple of pinballs, and a lot of old computers, consoles, carts (including a certain one of Mr Spencer's), discs, tapes, microdrives and the usual old gubbins. I long for an Atari 810 disk drive and a Neo Geo AES. My son joins me for the odd retro game - he likes Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, the Twilight Zone pin, and he's fascinated with Defender but he doesn't get the controls yet. His favourite thing is Lego Star Wars though (previously Lego Batman, until we 100%-ed it), which we play together... most days  ;)

I've spent my professional life either writing about, designing, developing or producing games, and I spend some of my spare time as part of the Bafta video games committee trying to make video games more accepted as an art form and as wholesome entertainment. Any spare time remaining goes into writing my book, about the history of UK computer games development between 1980 and 1987. Finally, last night I interviewed Nolan Bushnell on stage, a hero of mine (maybe many people of a certain age?) and turned out to be a lovely, humble guy... and then I contrived to beat him at a game of VCS Combat in front of a crowd - accidentally, I might add. I'll post up the link to the video when they've edited it. All the best, hope to contribute here often. Sorry for the long post. It's late, and I'm waiting for the programmers to fix a hang before we submit a milestone...

Hi to all -
Just been introduced to site and forum by the one and only

Billdooruk

Started off with a speccy +2 in my family,through megadrive and snes up to ps2 and wii today.

Dont have much to do with modern consoles,my collection mainly revolving around megadrive and gamecube - megadrive is the primary console in my games room.

in the middle of a megadrive mod in an unusual case that i hope to unveil soon.

Look forward to seeing your interview with Mr Bushnell. I too would like to get hold of an 810 at a non silly price :(
