    surely the commodore 64 needs no introduction? :)

    It introduced me to the virtual world when I was a toddler. It was the mid 80's and I loved the c64 until a NES and Amiga entered our household in the 90's...

    Highlights for me were IK+ and the dizzy games :)

    I just wanted to share it's birthday and make a few nostalgic gamers feel old :)

    I think they were more popular in Europe, commodores c64 and then their Amiga range of computers were pretty much the computers for gaming here back in the day :)
