    I started on the first Championship Manager sometime back in 92 on my Amiga, I've had every version since and had hours of fun thanks to the brilliant series. My brother is a bigger addict than I and even my dad plays the game.

    This says something for the quality of the series and this award is hugely deserved. Well done chaps and thanks for the games! (Love the idea of the Queen being a secret FM fan!)

    Congratulations, good to see that Peter Molyneux is not the only one getting recognition in this country for the gaming sector!

    I started out with CM on the Commodore Amiga back 1993, it would have been impossible to imagine back then that:

    In 2010 the series is still going strong,
    It changed name to FM
    Can be played it on a handheld (PSP) and console (360)
    the founders received an MBE,
    That SEGA became involved! I mean come on, Sonic the Hedgehog and CM were a million miles apart back in the early 90s!

    Good job all at SI and beyond!

    Wow! Congrats on your M.B.E's guys.

    CM and FM has certainly meant a lot to me throughout my life, from CM 93/94 up to the latest installment of FM.

    Thanks for giving me thousands of hours of fun, frustration, happiness, ****ed-of-ness, and cheer joy.

    that is great, really great. Easily the best series of any games and any genre ever made, both as a fun point of view and a selling point of view i am sure. Again, big thanks for all your effort now reap your rewards.. err apart from the vast sum of cash you will have already made of course

    Congratulations, well deserved!

    At least now I can ask others if the creators of THEIR favourite pass time are also honored by the Queen.

    But does this mean that we now have to call them by their first name only, like you do with Sirs? I'd feel strange not saying Mr. Collyer.

    This wasn't given out for just any reason, they fully deserve it! I've been converted since fm2007 and rightly so, as Football Manager is the greatest manager game ever created, i was converted to FM as soon as i first played it.

    Keep up to excellent works guys, and congratulations!

    I'm not saying they haven't done a good job; I'm merely pointing out that making a videogame, and establishing a franchise out of said game, for a profit is hardly a chivalrous act.

    Getting a m.b.e for designing a videogame seems like they're giving it out for any reason.. just my 2 cents.

    So surely the same goes for actors, footballers, singers etc etc.
    By your reckoning who would qualify? Police and the armed forces, thats it. Get real, the actors, entertainers and games producers bring happiness into peoples lives, yes for profit, but are any of us completely altruistic? I think not.

    There's always been leaders and pioneers in trade, industry, the arts, etc... who receive honours such as this. It's good to see that the games industry (clearly an important part of popular culture today) is being recognised. Also important to note, is the popularity of the game as a UK export worldwide.

    These two guys deserve the award for their efforts, for creating and continuing to create something, which has consistently proven so popular. They thoroughly deserve their award.

    Well done lads!

    So, one of them is now Sir Oliver? ;p

    *flees*

    Joking aside, it's wonderful to hear that. The Collyers have done so much for the world of football management games, without them there'd be only the high-visuals, low-realism FIFA clones.
    I've been a fan of FM/CM since the mid-90s, and pretty much everything I know about football I learned from there. Heck, I don't even care about the sport outside the games!

    I don't think i have missed a game in the series since it first started on the PC. It is a truly deserved reward to two fantastic guys, it has been an honour to share a game of FML and discussion.

    I have fond memories of the Daytime Football Association in early days of FML BETA
