I gave up gaming midway through 2006 with the PS2, I sold it along with the majority of my games (15 or so) to a friend for £80 or so. It was an expensive and shallow hobby, and I didn't miss it. However, out of nostalgia, I recently bought an old PSOne cheaply from a market stall (£8) and re-bought, what I think was the best game on the console (or any other!); 'Worms: Armageddon' ,which has since I last played it become a rare item. The game has almost endless replay value, with multiplayer in particular, with dozens of themed maps and a random land generator. Funny, charming and instant enough for brand new players, and intricate enough to spend forever on perfecting tactics and accuracy. The perfect worms game. While the move to 3D was an interesting development, and was a very fun game, undoubtedly; there's nothing that can challenge the satisfaction of landing a holy hand grenade right on top of your opponent's head, with nothing they can do to stop it, or burrowing deep underground and unleashing the eponymous 'armageddon', (the most destructive weapon in the game), or prodding the enemy into the briny depths, or dropping a stick of dynamite into their midst and so on and so on... The most perfect multiplayer game ever.
