    Dork (sorry, Zork) was ported to many platforms, inc. C64. I know it was available on the Amstrad CPC series as well, along with some other Infocom titles like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. (Anyone remember what a pain in the arse it was to get the babelfish before the domestobot did? ;) )

    It was Miner 2049er on C64. When I bought C64 three games came with it. Miner, Spike's Peak and Galaga.


    I miss those days. :(

    It's been a pretty long time, but I believe it was pong on a brownish console thing. After that I am not sure, but I know I had an Atari 2600, and LOVED QBert. I spent almost every Saturday in the arcade. That was when the arcade offered you much better games than you had at home, and it was only 25 cents per play. Although, there were expensive games like Dragon's Lair that cost 50 cents.

    I remember those days.. in Aus, it was 20c a game. I flatly refused to play Dragon's Lair, 'cos although the LaserDisc graphics technology was "awesome" for the day, I couldn't justify spending $1 a pop when that'd get me five games of Battlezone, or Asteroids, or Defender, or Galaga, or...

    Of course, Galaxy Force II was outrageous at $2 a game when it came out. But somehow, the motorised cockpit made that one justifiable... :p

    Airwolf on the C64, a helicopter that flies missions underground, at the time it didn't seem odd at all ;)

    My first game I remember was Galaxian at the arcades and Qix. I remember we used to go to the city on friday nights and we were given a handful of 20's. It inspired me in later life to get an arcade machine collecting addiction. Sadly most of which I had to sell a few years back to make room for kids. I do however still have a Star Wars Cockpit hiding in my shed :)

    I cant remember exactly but it would have been a C64 game as that was the first system we had... dare i say... the best system ever! I dare say that it would have been Frantic Freddy or Cohen's Tower as i loved those two games
