not those are ingame shot of many 50fps games. maybe show something similar your machine can do instead of telling us stories about your imaginary c64 friend. but you will fail to do that.
Lol! You've missed the point here. All the machines here can do nice piccies, but that's hardly going to prove the worth of the machine. That's just childish. So is trying to prove how good a game is by showing a few screen grabs. Don't be daft.
For Speccy greatness, try:
Ant Attack (Cuz the C64 one was just so darn'ed clunky)
Aliens (Oozing atmosphere, and closer to the film)
Elite (It doesn't flicker and its got new missions!)
My favorite C64 games:
Eidolon (The best port of this game me finx)
too bad for you that for the c64 commercial games were produced till 94-95... at the final years the c64 competed with the pc and amiga platforms, at that time the days of speccy/beeb/cpc/atari were over since LONG years. the list of your speccy greatness games has games that on the c64 are considered as crap since we had much better ones...
if it comes to what do you *think* which was the better machine, you are free to *think* speccy, beeb, or cpc was. however any objective comparison brings out c64 as the best by far. (lifespan, number of available games, nr of machines produced, price/performance ratio, best available games, whatsoever)
"All the machines here can do nice piccies, but that's hardly going to prove the worth of the machine."
its so pathethic when you pretend you dont understand my arguments. the c64 can do piccies be it static / non static that outclasses any other 8 bits. The c64 has games that look better and play better than any other 8 bits, the c64 can display static pics that are lightyears nicer than any other 8 bit platforms. The c64's today active userbase are 100x bigger than any other 8bits. For what I know here in hungary you cant find a single man at age 20-35 who doesnt knows what a c64 is, but and thats the same for most euro countrys I bet, while I would be suprised if anyone knew about the beeb/cpc/atari. More ppl had speccys, but anyone who wanted a decent gaming machine used a c64 at 85-90 here.
