I had a commodore 64 - I may even still have it somewhere. Loved Skramble and Defender. I also used to play Breakout a lot, even back in the late 1970s

In 1987 I got an Atari 1040 ST and 640x480 monochrome monitor ( luxury) for MIDI sequencing music.

It sure does bring back memories doesn't it. Plus they worked with out crashing and wanting a fortune spending on them.

I likes Lemmings, Sonic the hedgehog and Arc of time. Plus Leasure suit larry and Cruise for a corpes. Those were the days. Even though i was born in 1983. (27 by the way)

I've still got my Amiga here buried under piles of crap. I got a programme called Music Maker, that's how I started out. Piano sound was really quite good, I recall the sound chip being rated quite highly at the time. I did a few compositions on that then stopped for a few years. Dunno why, just did. Wasn't til the late 90s I started doing music again. Think I might have been distracted by girls or something prior to that :D

I had an Atari ST back in the day. Before that I had an Acorn Electron. God I wish we hadn't sold the Electron, I'd have loved to play it now.

The Atari ST was amazing, because unlike the Acorn Electron, you didn't have to wait 20 minutes while the game loaded from the cassette player. On the plus side you could copy games with a tape to tape recorder.

As a kid, we had one of these....

http://www.consoledatabase.com/consolei ... tonvc4000/

Fantastic in its day and remember games like 'air-sea battle' and something like 'tank command' as well as various other games i forget now but i do know that its still in a box somewhere at my parents house.

Later followed the Sinclair spectrum 48k whic i spent many teenage hours on and have a link to a games website if anybody is interested.

http://zxspectrum.net/

Afterwards, Sega master system and the like through PS1-2 and now 3...

Once, we thought space invaders in your front room was a miracle.... GTA4 will never be the same again.

I was bored and decided to update my signature but i couldnt think of anything to put, so i decided to just put Bollocks!

Theres a Vic20 (predecessor to the Commodor) gathering spiders in my lockup.

A good selection of games, but absolutely useless at anything serious

I'm really bummed I didn't keep the games I had when I was a kid, not only were they really entertaining but I could have made so much money selling them on ebay... Oh and obviously have fun game nights with friends.
Super Nes was my absolute favourite

I dunno it was probably far more powerful than the onboard computer that ran Apollo 11

I've still got my Atari 800, which I programmed game systems on in assembler.

I've also still got my 1040ST, with a road case. I used to use it to play live gigs. I modified them both. The 800 has 48K of RAM, and I was designing a HDD interface for it when I was actually still into hardware design. The 1040 was upgraded with additional RAM and a fan to keep it cool.

I try not to be so grumpy, but I am getting old. Grumpy usually comes with the realization that a lot of people are pricks.

Happy New Year to you!

I had a commodore 64, that SID chip was amazing (and still highly regarded to this day)!

In 1987 I got an Atari 1040 ST and 640x480 monochrome monitor ( luxury) for MIDI sequencing music.

I know you may be somewhat familiar with my signature... :thumb:
