Jesus that takes me back to the early 90s
I can clearly remember the time when i had worn down my parents to buy me a RAM upgrade to increase it to a whopping 1 MB of RAM.. plugging it in felt like real engineer work for a kid back then
God i played Elite religiously back then.. one of the best games ever. I'm currently very happy that so many legendary games get reboots or sequels.. XCom is a very good remake of the classic game (and damn hard on the advanced levels), now we get the inofficial Wing Commander Online game called Star Citizen and Elite is on its way too.
Together with the new Sim City and semi regular new Civilization games i'm set for a long time!
