I dealt with them in the 80s and the 80s are gone. Besides the only games I would play is Load Runner and Planetfall and for a few minutes.

Edit
I forgot about the Gold Box DnD, those too!

Gold Box D&D Pool of Radiance was one of my first games for C64.

I just installed Neverwinter Nights Diamond and am playing a PoR module

I used to spam Rock n Wrestling, Fight Night, Summer & Winter Games, Sky Fox, Montezuma's Revenge, Mario Bros, and those kid sports games with the water fountains, pot holes, and other hazards on the court / field.

I miss those games and actually downloaded PoR and Dosbox to play PoR again a while back.

It's still as fun as it was back then :D

Lol, they were some tiny computers aye? I remember seeing one round my friends house when I was about 6 years old, I thought it was space age tech at the time :P

Using 8Gb RAM with such a weak processor does not make much sense.
That CPU is extremely limited, it's in the Intel Atom range, which commercially is paired with 1 or 2 Gb. 4Gb CL6 would be OK.

8 Gb is for editing video, high quality gaming and stuff; you can't do such tasks fluently -in any scenario- with that range of processors anyway.

What an amazing machine that was.

Many I sunrise was I awake for, but ignored because I was inside playing The Last Ninja, Commando or Summer Games.

And all with a massive 64K of RAM and tape deck drive that sometimes wouldnt load if you were in the room. I swear to god, it seemed to work better if it knew you weren't there. (Self-aware, early Skynet prototype perhaps.)

Load"*",8,1 FTW.
