Out of the Blue

PC & Tech Authority has an article looking back at the Commodore 64, noting this is the 30th anniversary of this seminal gaming system (thanks Ant via Slashdot). I have a C128 in a box stashed away that was bestowed upon me years ago, and one of these days I'm going to set it up, though I have a strong fear that many of the games I have may not load, as I don't think 5.25" floppy discs were made to stand the test of a fraction of the time that has passed since they were made.

Why would you ever want to, when:

- It's available on GOG, running on all modern PCs.
- It was actually FREE on GOG for awhile. (Not sure if it still is.)


Nostalgia of playing it on the old C64 is about the only reason, otherwise I'd play it an emulator to easily save game state in case of crashes. Who am I kidding though? I have a full time job and 100's of modern anti-aliased games I haven't finished yet I'd rather waste time on. Sometimes I wish I was poor and only had a 386 with a soundblaster...then I'd be retro-gaming for sure
