    It's not... though there was a C64 Transformers game, and some cool dungeons and dragons game, but nothing I would ever play again. I'm sure nostalgia might entice some folks to give some games another look, but C64 didn't have too many memorable titles, not even that Transformer game

    Pools of Radiance, Secret of the Silverblade, Champions of Kryn. I loved those games, but I cringe at sitting through them again. Still, they brought some good times.

    Children? I was swapping 1.4 Meg Floppies to move from the city to the Sokal Keep.

    I'm dating myself more than I should :)

    Kids thesedays have got it made with thier doovdes and blue rays, I once played a PC version of Dragons Lair on floppy and I spent more time changing discs and waiting for things to load then seeing anything happen.

    I'll take it because you're Rhinox, and Rhinox is one of my fave BW characters :) , and because no one else would date me, heheh.

    Anyone want to do the math at how many floppies it would take to fit MGS4 in?

    Honestly, it would be impossible, because not one element in the game would fit in a 1.4, so maybe you could load one of Snake's eyeball textures in before you had to switch discs.

    Somehow, I still had fun though.

    *hahaha!*

    I had a few of my old PC games get screwed up because I would show kids in class was PC games looked like compared to their nintento games. Apparntly it was werid to play video games on somthing other than a NES.... Anyways, a few of them got ruined becuase they would leave fingerprints and touch the disk part. Shows what I get for being different....
