The first computer I bought was a C64.. I was seven at the time. I still remember having to wait for like five minutes to run a game since I had to buy tape games.. couldn't afford a floppy drive at that time heh.
A few years later I got the Amiga which completely blew my socks off.. it's a damn good machine and it was a lot better for games than the PCs were back then (this machine was released in 1985 with 32 color, smooth multilayered scrolling, 22 khz stereo sound while most PCs had 4 color graphics and PC speaker). I didn't get it until 1992 or so though.
So does anyone else here have great memories with either of these wonderful machines?
Btw, look at what I just bought hehe.. an Amiga style USB joystick for use in emulators. Very cool I think, it works perfectly in winUAE.. it's just like playing on an Amiga almost :D
