Well, I got my hands on some junked C64 parts - a pristine little used keyboard, and an empty case in great condition(literally nothing else, not even screws). Decided I'm going to hunt parts and build one up for the heck of it. I won't mod anything permanently or destructively, but I will likely mod it for modern convenience (ie HDMI out, modern power supply, usb storage) . Will also likely build my own joysticks out of arcade controls most likely.
So, back in the day I never had one of these, but I did spend a lot of time programming Pets and other 8-bit systems of the era. I also spent a fair bit of time playing other's people's C64s (kind of like a computer version of the Digger's Spoon) so I have some familiarity with them.
For those of you who had one back in the day, what were your favorite games ?
