The BBC Micro turns 30 1980's, the beginning of my gaming experiences and also the re-birth of the home console market after the 1977 crash that saw only Atari and Magnavox survive!.
One of the worse home computers ever. Using them in schools made no sense what so ever then. As they never became useful in later life, 30 years later. I used them at school then had to retain using PC's years later. What a waste of time/money.
Nope. The acorn electron was the worse home computer ever.
I had an Acorn Electron! To be fair, Elite was pretty amazing.
Funny - When I saw the headline I immediately thought of Elite! Man, I'm getting old!
Elite was awesome. Think i played chucky egg more than anything. lol
@Knushwood Butt @Mnemonic-DK @forcefullpower lol, indeed Elite came to my mind first as well.. and yes I am also, seemingly getting old! :/ @DJMarty To correct you it was one of the 'first' home computers, so what do you expect. Also there was no GUI / OS to speak of (MOS), you were effectively on command line so if you wanted it to do something you had to program it... not a bad thing for budding programmers back in the day!
But can it run Crysis ?
Yeah course.. 320 x 200, 8 colors, doesn't get much better than that!
