i think i might dig up WC1 and give it another whirl
Needed a multiple choise as well.
Got my old C64 still as well as both my Amigas. The 64 and the A500 is in the basement but my 17yo Amiga 4000 is still running up here and I play around with it, maybe not daily but once a week at least.
Got my C64 just a few weeks after it was released here in Sweden. Those were the days!
We were cleaning out the back at my work and found a commodore that actually ran a piece of heavy equipment. Someone also found a spectrum back there in a box.
I was THE BEST at getting the battleship in Space Invaders (although it wasn't called that) on my older sister's old Atari with the weird long prodded handle joypan-sticks things. I believe she still ports that.
Still own a Spectrum ZX and Amiga (I voted Spectrum) in my folks loft/attic. Got a box of tapes and disks for them too somewhere. Don't think I have a tape player for the Spectrum though
i still have my amiga 500 in the loft with a few boxes of disks and the cdrom attachment.
i recently bought an old rubber key speccy with the intention of mounting it on my wall as my first computer (we had a zx81 but that was my dads) so i wasn't bothered if it worked or not but it did perfectly. i then found a website that had a program for speeding the speccy games up about 5x faster while loading. i found some mp3's of some games and connected the speaker out of my pc to the ear in on the speccy. loading times were stupid fast. the speccy can cope with the speed, it was the old cassette's that couldn't which was the reason for the slow speed.
If you own any computer hardware that old I think you must have waaaay too much junk in your house. I hold onto PC's for a few years in case I need spare parts but once they are no use it's just taking up space.
Is it wrong to suggest playstation for this poll. I mean the very first one. Being from 1997 and all. idk
Nothing that old but I did have a 286 laptop once. It must have weighed 40 lbs so laptop was a misnomer.
I haven't even heard of half of those platforms.
ZX Spectrum for me, still have tapes and disks. But I rarely start it up, these days if I'm feeling nostalgic I just use an emulator.
I still own my NES does that count?? I also own an original working table top type Pac Man machine. Boo Yah!
I have my PS1 but obviously don't game on it anymore .
I played a Duke port recently where they added 3D weapons and enemies and it was new compared to how the first one looked and played
