Best & Worst Daley Thompson’s Decathlon Events

Posted by Big Boo on April 25th, 2009

Daley Thompson was a great British athlete and Daley Thompson’s Decathlon was a great British video game.  The Spectrum version possibly had the edge over the Commodore 64 version just because you could use the keyboard to play, which made the running much easier in my opinion.  If only the Spectrum had had the C64’s keyboard…

Anyway, of the ten events that make up the Decathlon everybody had a favourite and least favourite event in the video game.  For me, I liked all the throwing events, although I think the High Jump wins because it was the one I was best at, and it had probably the worst animation of all the events, so had comedy value too.  Vote for your favourite below…

And my worst event?  Definitely the 1500m (if I managed to get that far).  Far too much joystick waggling or keyboard bashing, and I still invariably came last.  Which was your worst event?
