Do you think this is the best?
...and we liked it, too.
A friend, James was telling me when he was a kid, he would go around to his friends place to play with the friends Commodore 16. His friend asked him if he would like to play a game. James said ‘sure’, and his friend would quickly type the source code then and there for the game. How old school is that?
My first home computer was a ZX81 . I remember typing in the whole 16KB of a game, and before i could play or save it the computer crashed, the memory expansion packs were dodgy. Was not pleased :)
Those were the days. My brother and I used to write silly little games for each other in BASIC on our bleeding-edge Apple IIe, way back when. Then Infocom came along and made us all look bad. Still, typing in game code just for a one-time use is impressively old-school in the extreme. Wherever James’s friend is now, he’s probably awesome.
Yeah i used BASIC too, its very unforgiving tho isn’t it. One spelling mistake and nothing works at all :)
Perhaps, but at least in BASIC I stood a fighting chance of finding said mistakes.
Really, it was a well named language.
I miss it, a little.
I remember trying to learn C++, i didn’t get that far but i noticed a large number of similarities between the two languages. I take it you code or use HTML ?
hahaha thats funny. that sounds like something my grandpa would say.
Heh, immediately had me thinking: "Ye can't get ye flask"
If you like old-school games, there are tons that you can download for free as abandonware. Here are some great sites:
I love abandonia. XD
I Don't get it…and i'm a video game addict! D:
