Hey Funkyboss and Anaconda and Hyestar2000
I started with the C-64 with datasette my first game
on datasette was Frogger , then I bought one that was
a cartridge on the c64 I do not remember very well the
name I believe that was Wizard of ....
I remember very well forbidden forest, summer games I and II, Winter Games, World Games,
Exploding Fist ( One of my favorites ) the great gianna sisters, green beret, Donkey Kong,
Pac-Man, Defender of the crown ( one of my favorites ), mule, bluemax, hardball ( by
the great accolade ) Archon I and II, Bruce Lee, Centipide, Galaga, I do not remember
right now others, but I know that I loved them, I had shoe boxes full of 5 1/4" floppy disks
LOL Also, I used to play Commando, the one of silvester stallone I do not remember
the name right now, all the games of Last V8,
I just had the Amiga 500 with the normal 512Kbytes and the games that I used to play
were: Shadow of the beast I and II and III, Blood MOney, Defender of the crown
I loved Psignosys company great on parallax scrolling , I do not remember other games on my
amiga, but I remember a lot of good intros from crackers, coders, etc oohhhh I remember
the great Defender LOL too. I have like one CD full of commodore 64 games, mods, etc
Oohh the Great one man and his droid was an excellent game on his time, I love the music of
a lot of games made by commodore 64 developers, what is the name of that company of the
one man and his droid ? I love those games. I remember non terraqueous a friend of mine used
to play that game.
What I loved so much about commodore computers, specially Amiga 500 and above was that they
knew how to use at maximum their resources, with a little memory they created wonderfull
things, on amiga they made really multitasking operations, you could be formatting a a floppy
and at the same time running several applications, etc and you were not slowdown or felt like
the PC's , PC sucks even if you have a lot of memory ( RAM ) a super speedy hard disk and
a speedy CPU, even if you want to format, burn and run applications at the same time, you feel
instantly the slowdown or pauses, that really sucks, why they could not make perfect systems
like commodore ? I do not know exactly what is the reason, the programmers ? the processor ?
I believe a little of both of them, the programmers could do miracles with so little RAM
Now ? Today ? You need to have megabytes and megabytes of information to have a crappy software
or a crappy game, it is like if they made the games with their feet ! ! ! ! instead with brain
and hands. I believe that game developers are too lazy on these days that they want more
memory and they require more resources to develop something mediocre. If commodore could live
for these days, it would be the best computer , I do not know why died, maybe was because they
did not know how to manage the publishing and marketing or they lack of money, who knows exactly.
but for me is the best computer ever made. I could compare commodore 64 with my first
AT 286 12mhz, it really suck all the time, it was monocrome, no sound, just beeps and beeps
later on they made the CGA LOL and EGA and then VGA, etc
Remember what they could do with the Amiga ? miracles, remember the video toaster ?
it was so cheap to do a lot of amazing video effects, even they used on some t.v. series
babylon V and other one that I do not remember but it was years ago.
Imagine what could be now a Commodore on these days if they would keep their good work ?
it would be a monster with the best operating systems, etc. what a shame that we do not
have that kind of computers on these days.
Keep posting on this thread
take care guys
