They think its COOL, I keep telling them that was top of the line graphic's and they laugh at me.
8) If they only knew... I have a green screen for my 64 too. Used it for 2 years before I got my C=128. Then finally got a color screen and monitor. I still perfer playing my old Ultima games on them.

The PC was pretty week for games at that point. That 4 color EGA card was a big problem. So was the lack of sound. The Adlib wasn't even out yet, and neither was the Soundblaster.

There were so many good games for the Commodore I could probably post game names for the next hour and not even scrach the surface of it's library of content.
Best Regards,
