I'd love to see a VIC 20 feature. It always gets overlooked in favour of the C64 or the Amiga. Even on the web there isn't that much info about it, yet in 1983 at my school it was probably only 2nd to the Spectrum in popularity. There were loads of great games for it, including the best version of A...
