MycroftHolmes: Loan Starr: One of my regrets from back then is that I never tinkered with the C-64, other than to play games. From what I've read in later years it was a pretty versatile computer that was capable of quite a bit.

I programmed the heck out of my C-64 in basic.  Never got into the more advanced languages (assembler made my head hurt), and the difficulty in programming hi-res graphics were pretty much limited me to basic.  I do regret not sticking with programming.  Of course I was in maybe 6th grade at the time.


There was a magazine called "Run" back then that had code the reader could use to program the C64.  I learned quite a bit, but still mostly played games.   I was also in about 5th or 6th grade at the time.   I later went on to learn how to do some programming in college and I think those early experiences helped make it less intimidating.  I enjoy programming, but never thought to make it my career.

jake_lex: You might be inclined to think that the ET video game isn't actually as the reputation it has gotten would lead you believe. That we're just sort of lookigna t it through the prism of today's games, and if you look at it on its own terms, compared to Atari 2600 games of the time, it's not so bad.

You'd be wrong. It was a piece of shiat even by 1982 standards. I remember my parents bought it for me because I loved the movie E.T. It was my first taste of truly bitter disappointment, the first lesson that something you really want might turn out to be crap after all.

clkeagle: under a mountain: theorellior: Kinetic King: Remember Simon? That was in a class of it's own because it had colored buttons that lit up. It would light up the buttons in a random order and then you'd have to press the buttons in the same order--it got dull after about 10 minutes.
My friend and I would have competitions on Simon, but I was never very good. A similar game was Major Morgan, that looked kinda like a brick cellphone but had these red and clear membrane buttons. You could slide a "game card" over them to play different games.
I remeber MErlin which sounds like your description.

It's too bad you didn't have access to Pac-Man 4k for the 2600:

Yeah, it's a later homebrew, but it's for 2600, and it just proves that if they'd put any effort or money toward the original version, it would have been awesome. Instead, they just spat out something (tales say they spent 2 weeks on it) and cashed in on the license.

incrdbil: Atomic Jonb: special20: All I ever used the Atari 2500 for was to CG over video.
My weapon of choice was the most venerable Commodore 64. Favorite game on that was Red Storm Rising.


I hated the TASMs.  They always seemed to get shot down on the targets that needed it most.  A Udaloy?  No problem, TASM always got through.  The KIEV?  Nope, shoot-down, shoot-down, shoot-down.

I loved the higher level settings, where you had to match sonar patterns to the manual to identify ship class.

I loved the hunt the boomer mission, which rapidly turned into a knife fight range game that made you sweat.


...not only having to ID patterns, but knowing how to hide in and under a thermal gradient? The game had it all - and I've yet to see a better sub sim since. I've tried a few...

That's what I thought. But it was 1983, ewaste wasn't as high in the zeitgeist.

If it really is a million copies in one spot it represents enough gold that it's worth taking a couple excavators out for a week.

jst3p: Kinetic King: Gotta admit that the best. game. ever. for me was the Roller Coaster Tycoon series.  I actually won $3985 in contest money designing a coaster for RCT3.  Right now, the only game I really play anymore is the Platinum Edition of RCT3 which makes up for the glitches in the first version of RCT3 and is easily the apotheosis of the RCT series.  It's nearly a decade old, but still kicks the heck out of Farmville.

That won't be for long; I just ordered the complete Civilization IV package (with the 3 add-ons) off of Amazon and should be getting it around the time I return from Germany.  The only thing that sucks about the Civ series is that they kick my ass on all but the easiest settings, but the mind-blowing depth of the game keeps luring me back.

The SimCity series, up until the disastrous release of Sim V, was also a big favorite of mine.  I also loved SSG's Warlords series and wish they would work on a Vista machine.  Finally, it's a good thing I didn't discover Minecraft until too late or else I'd probably be addicted to it...

My favorite game of all time:

clkeagle: Rapmaster2000: I was so fired up for ET the video game.  I don't think we played it for more than an hour.  It sucked that bad.  Atari's Pac-Man port was garbage too.

Isn't there another landfill somewhere with all the Pac-Man cartridges? If I remember right - by the time Pac-Man was about to hit shelves, they were already set to ship Ms. Pac-Man (which is a great 2600 game). So they did the same thing as ET - dumped all the secondary shipments instead of letting them go to retail.


Actually, the story behind Pac-Man is pretty similar to the story behind ET -- the game was rushed out the door for the holidays, and Atari produced way too many cartridges thinking that the shiatty, botched result would be a major system-seller.  So Atari managed to crash the industry by making the exact same mistake twice.

Remember that H.S.W. had only about 6 weeks to work on the game from conception to final program just so Atari could cash in on the 1982 season. Realizing that, maybe some of you may not think it's really bad after all.

Best interview I saw him say, he made one of the best games (Yars Revenge) and one of the worst (E.T.)

And for you more positive folks out there, here's another geeky thing I do when I'm not making stick bombs, watching old Buster Keaton comedies, dating the women in my artists' co-op, or playing on the local underwater hockey team (it's co-ed, BTW).  Yes, I create mazes.  Enjoy!

Ha, I remember Quest of the Avatar being the earliest memory of beating a game and getting real satisfaction from doing it.

Looking back, though, beating Legend of Kage as a kid probably ought to have been as well.  Tried playing that again on the Wii, Christ that game is frickin' impossible.

I was limiting it to C-64 Specific mags.... otherwise I'd have put in COMPUTE!, etc.

I know there were other C-64 specific mags (especially in the UK)... those 3 seemed to be the Top 3 in the U.S. at the time though, although maybe they are just the 3 I got exposed to.

No, you idiot. Trying to kill him will only make him rise up and fulfill his destiny. We need to promote him to middle management in an office full of petty women, get his wife hooked on gambling and opiates, and get a pair of middle aged, overweight, nudist, swingers to move next door and have bi-weekly backyard orgies.

Kill his spirit to keep him from being a danger to the dark side. So many aspiring evil tyrants overlook that option.

You never played Adventure?

[upload.wikimedia.org image 480x315]

Or Haunted House which was basically the same game.


No, Raiders of the Lost Ark was simply Haunted House with different sprites.  Adventure was ground breaking for the time, and is probably one of the earliest examples of a well hidden Easter Egg.
Pac-Man and E.T. broke records for how bad they were.  I would rate the Atari version of Donkey Kong right up there, too.  The hype didn't match the 2600 port.  Yet, there were also many amazing titles such as Yar's Revenge, H.E.R.O., Dig Dug, and River Raid.  Activision ended up making the best games for the 2600.  Then again, their core crew were all former Atari employees.

I can relate.  We had a few Apple IIe computers when I got to high school and I spent as much time on them as possible.  Didn't do much in the way of actually typing in code from magazines, though.  The Apples had 5-1/2" floppies, but I vaguely remember a computer my brother had got programs off of--I kid you not--a cassette tape.

I mostly stuck to writing programs that would do simple graphics while my brother--the computer genius--was the one who got into all the PEEK and POKE commands in Apple BASIC that had the real computing power...

MylesHeartVodak: steve42: Random Anonymous Blackmail: Pac-Man for Atari pissed me off, I was expecting something similar to well Pac-Man not what ever the hell they shipped.

Here's an albeit-verbal earworm for you:  Boo-Dee-Boo-Dee.  Momp-Momp- Momp- Momp- Momp- Momp- Momp- Momp- Momp- Momp- Momp- Momp- Momp...

/Hated Atari Pac-Man
//Even Kool-Aid Man was better

Stick your little finger in your ear and wiggle it slowly.  Pac-Man noise.


That is actually creepy how accurate that is.

I dunno.  I thought the Atari version of Pac Man sounded like a taut rubber band being plucked.  Quite a bit different from the "wokka wokka" sound of the arcade version.

Well you're obviously new to Fark, if you're new to snark. (And if you believe everything here is serious.)
