what was your favourite C64 game?

I've noticed that people around like to do restrictions and C64 is the main one so I wondered what made you want to do it

Head over Heels, albeit a Spectrum game originally - C64 is where I played it.

Dunno really. I still really enjoy H.E.R.O. and play it on my C64 every now and then. Loderunner is good on the C64 as well. Exile is excellent albeit a bit painful to get into properly.

About why do C64 gfx read http://ptoing.net/html/c64info.htm

Back then the only scener doing C64 stuff on pix was phase1 who is not really around anymore tho. The whole C64 thing people do here is mainly mine and Helm's fault so to say as we found that the C64 has strong aethetics and thus "pimped" it :)
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

I was never very interested in the c64, I was an atari-owning nintendo-loving kid. I'm quite young as well.

But Exile seems so damn great. I love the space exploring stuffs @ w@ And I wanna play it.

I was always more of a Commando Libya type of guy. I also have fond memories of playing Samantha Fox Strip Poker and Friday the 13th.
