I can't do this one. It's like Sophie's Choice between the Speccy and C64.

I would imagine this'll go the same as the Retro Fusion version and the C64 Mafia will stage a mass forum invasion.

Meaning, the majority favour the 64?

There must be a fault with my browser - I can't see any of the 8-bit Atari machines listed at all. Is anyone else experiencing this bizarre rendering fault?

Keeping it simple mate. I know there are more than 4 8-bit computers, but I just went with these core four.

Controversy? There's no controversy about that.

Lets cut to the chase....

I'm going to my old school playground, anyone who (foolishly) thinks the answer is anything other than the Spectrum is welcome to come around and engage in fisticuffs.

I would have to say ZX Spectrum and CBM64 joint first with the BBC 2nd and the CPC just thrown out with the rubbish...

I had to vote for the Amstrad here, as although my dad had a C64 that I used to play on... I can't remember a thing about it... However my mate had an Amstrad CPC and we spend hours playing those crap amsoft games. Good times
