    I lasted about 5 minutes...but 4 of that was the intro and loading time. Sister's teen son then took over and only stopped when his Mum said dinner was ready about 90 minutes later.

    Great quote from him was he asked why I was so, so slow and I said 'I am trying to read the instructions as they come on screen'.

    'You are reading the instructions? Oh my God, you are SO ancient!'

    I reckon I could have him in 'Space Invaders'.

    Never found playstation/xbox as good as a PC (of appropriate build) for gaming.

    I must admit the graphics and the depth to 'Spiderman' was fascinating.

    When he played it unfolded like a film and what amazed me was how the game went with him in whatever direction he took it - none of these 'dead ends' and automatic re-sets I seem to remember in games when you went astray.

    I just tried 'Fortnite'. Had absolutely no idea what to do or what was going on, so my dream of winning a million quid as a young Brit recently did on this game will have to wait.

    There's a first time for everything!
    Personally, I like survival horror games.
    "The Last of Us" and "Dying Light" are my two all time favourites. As well as Tomb Raider.

    Last year I raised about £700 for Edinburgh's Sick Kids Hospital by doing a 24 hour gaming marathon. It wasn't nearly as bad as I expected, in fact I quite enjoyed it.

    I played Crash Bandicoot with my Daughter some years ago but I haven't "gamed" for a long time.

    Nah, as soon as I say Rees-Mogg is my idol and I try to emulate him at all times I get inundated with requests for physical shenanigans.

    I have, literally, never played a computer game in my life. I wouldn’t know where to start. Any suggestions?

    Red Dead Redemption 1 and 2
    Any Forza
    Any Call of Duty
    Any Halo

    All great fun, but the last-man-standing games like Warzone and Fortnite are brilliant.

    Red Dead Redemption is just epic. The scenery and gameplay are wonderful.

    Candy Crush?

    Angry Birds?

    Careful Mr Stopwatch - you're playing with fire with such a request...

    Red Dead is fab, isn't it? Although, when I attempt to play my son complains that the aim isn't just to ride on a horse and explore the surrounding area. Bless him. He'll get the hang of it one day.

    Treat yourself to a ZX Spectrum Vega for that true retro gaming sensation:

    The most sophisticated computer game I have ever played is solitaire. That's Ok by me.
    I cannot see the point of the violent ones and nothing else appeals to me at all. I'd rather read a good book, really. A real book, you understand, not a kindle one...
    I have tried to uninstall XBox from my laptop, but it won't let me.:(
    I am probably a Luddite.

    Ha tried COD with eldest years back, all I heard was "headshot" "headshot" "headshot" ...

    Then there was Forza and after running myself off the track and reversing around the track by accident several times the nabs concluded I couldn't or perhaps shouldn't drive! :D:D:D
