Been meaning to do this thread since pretty much forever, but the day comes closer that I dust off my Commodore 64 and get some good times going again. My GameBoy Classic is still an every day dear friend.

For the purpose of this thread, I draw the line between NES and SNES. Never been that huge into Nintendo but that's when games seemed to change into something a little more complex in general.

I'm personally primarily into C64 games, though some of the most fun gaming experiences in my life have been on the Atari 2600. That two player game with the tanks, what was it called? That was fucking great.

I grew up with a C64 (and a Vic 20 before that). Good times. One thing I conveniently forgot about were the hilariously long load-times for some games. I swear to fuck Archon 1 (or was it 2?) took like 15-20 minutes to load. A lot of titles in Epyx I liked a lot. Gateway to Aphsai and Temple of Apshai trilogy I played a lot. Impossible Mission was pretty fun... never did beat it though (lived up to its name, I guess!) Lode Runner was an favorite too.

Do older PC games (DOS, EGA graphics, 80s) qualify for this thread?

Funny, I erased the load times from memory apparently, otherwise I could tell you since I played Archon 1 & 2 to death.

Impossible Mission could be beaten??

Ever played Stellar Triumph? I swear that's the most fun game I have ever played.

As much as I'm all for talking about vintage and older games, we already have two video game threads: one which is more for consoles and the other one for PC/indie/less-known games. I imagine that you can find a place to talk about vintage games in either one of those, depending upon the format.
