Everyone Bow Down to The Warlord for creating the greatest thread ever!!!
Sorry, got a little nostalgic after a brief but poignant discussion with Black regarding the Curse of Monkey Island, Police Quest
, and Pirates!
Fuck your news stories about cats hypnotising store clerks and robbing them, you fuckers. http://cosmos.bcst.yahoo.com/up/player/pop...26&src=news
. The 80's were the shit, and if you don't think so, fuck you and the mother fucking horse you rode in on.
According to the 2001 edition of Guinness book of records, the C64 was the most "prolific computing device ever manufactured". During its production run from 1982 to... 1993, about 30 million units were sold. To put this number in perspective, that's more than all the Macintoshes in the world. Suck on that, bitches.
If you ain't down with floppy disks and 8-bit graphics you can suck a fat dick, cause you don't know jack shit. If Sierra
is just a mountain in your book, and King's Quest
is latin, then just eat shit and die, cause that shit was cool.
L-shift-O-shift-242,8 deserves to live on in lore, the same way up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, start does.
If Lode Runner, Choplift, Centipede, Juke Box, Aztec Challenge, Summer Games, Batman, and The Last Ninja
don't ring a bell, then just lay right down and die, ya heartless bastards, cause you don't got a fucking clue.
Commodore 64 forever, bitches!
The C-64 was the classic games machine, hands down! I had an original Atari 2600 and a bunch of carts. Later I got a C-64 and I loved it!!! Activision was one of my favorite companies! Who remembers Beamrider? (My all time favorite game) and pitfall!
I had that Pirates games! That was amazing! The very first game that I got for the C-64 was in the fall of 1983. (Fuck! I am old!) It was by Avalon Hill called Telenguard. A D & D role playing type game, you were this guy in a 50 level dungeon and you had to accumulate weapons and treasure, as well as shields and armer to fight off monsters. I can not tell you the hours and hours that my brother and I spent at that game!
Accolade was another company created by some of the Activision game designers who left Atari. I got Hardball which was at the time the best baseball game ever! Do you remember a game called Alter Ego? You assumed the role of a character (person) and went through a series of family, work, and growing up experiences over the course of a lifetime. Your choices would be tracked by the computer with 100's of variations on something like a 20 point personality profile. It was out in both male and female versions.
You just brought back some great memories! If you want to do another thread about the Atari 2600, I could talk about that as well!!
You younger guys don't know how great some of those classic games were!!!
