Consoles that won't die: The Commodore 64

I had my Commodore 64 -- had to score!

darthv721198d ago

does it classify as a console? I classify it as a gaming PC.

Either way, it was a fun run for Commodore that got better when the Amiga arrived.

Couldn't agree more, miss the days of Commodore vs Atari so much.

Gaming feels less interesting without healthy competition.

And the Amiga won. One of the best systems I have ever owned.

Just thinking about captive brings back such good memories

The Amiga was way ahead of times, there was a "silly" add-on called DCTV where it could display a 24bit/16 million color image through a 16 color screen mode. Something unheard of back then.

I’m still a proud owner of a A1200 with Blizzard 1230 and a massive 350mb hard drive, Alien Breed 3D 2 runs silky smooth.

darthv721198d ago

I sold my A1200 a long time ago but i did keep the Zappo 2x cdrom drive that I used with it. I could play some CD32 games and i still have those. alien breed, mutant football, project-x.

Hell, still got the 1084s monitor but i wouldnt sell that. I made me some custom RGB cables for the genesis, snes even the atari jaguar. RGB was the shizz back then. It was the HDMI of the 90's.

I loved the CD32, I was blown away when I saw Simon the Sorcerer voiced by Chris Barry

Saying C64 is an console is insulting for its creators. It was the best home computer of its times.

I loved my C64! I wish I still had it.

deantak1198d ago

I skipped this one when I was young.

barb_wire1198d ago

You missed out on some truly amazing games.

barefootgamer1198d ago

I had one growing up. Played a lot of Zork I. Got eaten by a lot of grues...

talisker1198d ago

It's a computer, stupid, not a console. A great one, though.
