When this hit the 7/11's (by the way it's called 7/11 because all stores closed at 9 or 10 back then and it was a novelty for a store to be open from 7am to 11pm) the lines formed right after everyone was done with their paper route. It was huge. Then Pong. Then PacMan and the table version of arcade games. Then Asteroids and Space Invaders.
Now games look like the real world nearly.
Far Cry 3 and 4
Tomb Raider 2013 and 2015
The latest favorite is Men of War: Assault Squad 2. It is a 3rd person game which I never play anymore, but I tried this and it is quite addicting. Very hard and very well done.
I had a C64, and a VIC20 before that, and also an Atari 800 for a little while, although a friend of mine had one for a long time and I used to play games on it.
Could do BASIC, but never really learned assembly apart from using a few POKEs in BASIC.
It was great, with a MODEM back then you could get on BBSes and sometimes get the latest warez as well.
I also had the Commodore VIC 20 before going to a Commodore 64. The funny thing was that I also had an Apple II at the same time which was a far better computer but we used the 64 much more than the Apple. I remember when I set up my first BBS using a 300 bps modem on a C64. Then came 1200 bps, 2400 bps, and after that we went to 9600 bps which was light speed in comparison.
