The 64 was far superior to the vic 20 and the 16. Having grown up with all of these I loved the Commodore 64 and still have one working at home. The only reason I sold my first 64 as a kid was to upgrade to the Amiga 500
Amiga really was the shizz. There is a documentary largely focused on it and the battle with Atari.

From bedrooms to billions - the Amiga years.

This is an epic documentary. Long, full of fantastic anecdotes and absolutely essential if you have any love for games of that period. Particularly the Amiga.

The C16 was credible, but the Vic20 was pretty lame...
Used to love my C64 - 1200/75 baud modem on Compunet, two disk drives with a floppy notcher so you can turn the 5 1/4 over and use the other side, top entertainment value and imo better than my Amiga. I can’t believe I gave it all away

The Amiga. Now if only they did a mini of that
I still have my Amiga 500 SE with the 128kb kickstart extension. I doubt any of the floppy disks still work though. Gosh I feel old now

Mine worked fine after being sat in the loft 20years. Sold with about 300 'backup' games
LoL. Loved these “backup” games. I remember tekken and one of the disks was corrupt after loading like 10 disks lol. Such a waste of time it was but gosh it was something.

Just googled and my Amiga 500 is the tiger edition. Wonder if that increases value or not.

No Wizball
I can save money by digging out my old one in the loft complete with broken joysticks and oxidised old tapes. Cold
The sid chip
Sorry no “attack of the mutant camels”
Great deal, heat added!
I've been trying to make a sequel to the Cauldron games, I'll finish it some day!
If anyone wants to pop round I can use my tape to tape boom box and make them a copy . Wooo weee par par par we wooo ping ping
It’s nothing like the real 64, sit for ages playing Russian roulette with the tape, would it load or not most of the time it wouldn’t.
Edited by: "eslick" 16th Sep
No Myth, Turbo Outrun or Turrican However Speedball 2 is there, imo one of the best ever games for the 64
Why?

Was just about to say the same.

Just got that "weeeeeoooooo" beginning to the tune in my head.
zcaprd715/09/2020 21:57

That's because the Vic 20 is the predecessor to the other two.

The C16 was basically a stripped-down C64 and was a huge market flop.

It'll be an impossible mission finding that lift he mentioned.

Would've had more respect for you if you had connected it up to a 14" Portable Ferguson TV with large push buttons and no remote control
Xenon with megablast theme song was my favourite.

Loved the music from that loading screen
You add your own games to this too. Really easy to load the roms.
Heat added. Great price, but the voices in my head keep telling me the 'Maxi' (proper sized C64 version) would be the more logical choice for a more authentic retro experience. Also the 8-bit guy said the Maxi C64 gives slightly better performance over this mini version too so....

Pesky voices!

P.S. Rob Hubbard or Martin Galway? Which is best? Crazy Comets, Sanxion, Commando, Last V8, IK, Thrust and Thing on a Spring are all totally epic Hubbard tunes, but I still think the Ocean Loader by Galway saved our sanity for many lost hours reloading games from tape. Also 'Parallax' music is, for me, the absolute best chip tune of all time.

Ben Daglish, gone but not forgotten for - Last Ninja, Kettle, Firelord etc. Happy times!
