Elite was extremely impressive at the time.

The 3D graphics weren't all that impressive, but for me it was more the 3D perception of being able to travel around space, they pulled off that illusion very well. Plus, the ability to play the game in different ways, i.e. as a trader, or a bounty hunter, etc. No other game had done all of this.

What's more it was all done with just 48K of memory on my ZX Spectrum.
