Has anyone ever played all games (or at least all allowed games) on Wos?

    I very much doubt it. Feel free to take up the challenge!

    And don't forget to write a short review of each game on the Spectrum2.0 site.

    I think I fill pretty much all the requirements for such a task: I'm currently unenployed, lacking a sense of fulfillmente, bored and getting ready to be drunk!

    Nat Cross set out to review every Spectrum game in alphabetical order for YS3, but four and a half years and 17 instalments later, he's still only half way through the As...

    Nobody. But the diehard fans could play several hundreds.

    Only several hundreds? I surely played more over a thousand ZX games :).

    Question: where did you think the 18,500 in-game screens came from? :razz:

    Seeing his performance with Buzzsaw+, I reckon Einar Saukas can do the lot in a couple of weeks. All we need to do is club together to cover his salary :p

    If the average loading time was 4 minutes per game, it would take roughly 74,000 minutes to just load up a game; if you wanted to play it even briefly, you can make that 140,000 minutes at least - and we all know that plenty of games took several ice ages to play - you couldn't have a substantial game of Gauntlet for example... Our average life span works out at roughly 700,320 hours - to play all the spectrum games and play them for four minutes each would be 2,333 hours 33 minutes - even taking into account longer loading times, it's perfectly feasible to play each and every one. I doubt if anybody would be stupid enough to attempt it though :lol: but we could always buy Einar a pallet of Pro Plus - that should keep him going...

    If you spent 5 minutes on every game in the archive it would take over a month of continuous playing to play every game.

    ah TechnicianSi, I didn't even see your reply before posting mine. strange you said 4 mins each per game and I said 5 mins!

    tbh games like Elite would need at least 30-40 minutes to be considered 'played' imo
