We can already hear the screams of some retro gaming fans bemoaning the fact that the much-loved PC Engine isn’t higher, but there is your clue! In its homeland of Japan this machine was very well received with sales of over 7 million units, but in the rest of the world it was a different story. The repacked North American version of the machine, the TurboGrafx-16, failed to gain any significant market share from Sega or Nintendo, and the European edition of the TurboGrafx was pretty much still born. But the fact remains that the PC Engine has one of the best games catalogues of any retro console, and if you are a shoot ‘em up fan then you will be in heaven with titles such as Blazing Lazers (Gunhed), Lords Of Thunder and R-Type. If you haven’t already, you should really be making space for one of these in your collection.
