    i've only ever played the original tomb raider out of this list, and that was for like 5 minutes
    i also played tomb raider 2013 but that's not a UK game

    most of my library is american or japanese, with a couple of canadian games sprinkled in

    Oh yes, Sensible soccer and Dizzy for the win! Those were the days. Codemasters and Sensible software were on top of the game :)

    Team17 and Psygnosis also worth noting as top tier.

    Went to school with a guy who helped make F1 2019. Guess he really did make it. Always thought his talk of being a game developer when he grew up was wishful thinking and he'd end up in a bank or call centre or something. Fair play to him for following the dream.

    Sure, UK has made some good stuff in the past, especially back when home computers were all the rage in Europe. How many great games can you think of that have been made in UK in recent years though? Not that many come to mind for me.
    Japan still makes the best games IMO, they just have an unique style that is difficult to copy well. With that comes a lot of weird and sometimes off putting games, but also a lot of innovative games that are entirely new ideas.

    But Japan lives, eats, drinks, shits Video games.

    Japan is to video games. What earth is to the solar system. im mean it would be a fine solar system but not just the same without earth.

    That's kinda, obvious since the first video game to ever be implemented was IN the UK.

    Christopher Strachey's Draughts. It was implemented on the Ferranti MK1 computer, and it was literally checkers...

    How do you figure that when its widely acknowledged the first ever video game was made by William Higinbotham from New York in 1958.
