Never ask Zetr0 to do any of these voting type things, he'll just write you an essay instead...

okay okay..... i am back after adding 512kb ram to my 500 mobo.... so yes... i improved a gaming system *(while)* voting....

hmmm this is a difficult vote PJ..... theres soooo many cool things.... but ... its soooo difficult......

80s would have to be specky / c64 but wich..... i had both.... luckly i managed to avoid school yard arguments by blagging specky AND c64 games

and the 90's..... sheesh..... okay...


Commodore 64

Playstation (later to be known as playstation 1)


in the process of this vote I have managed to
  • updated a circuit schematic
  • upgraded my 500 to accept 1MB of chip ram native on the mobo
  • Set dinner up including Roast Chicken with mash / veg
  • wrote this *small* essay about it..

oh its all good

Only 2 choices, very difficult to decide since I had the following and each meant alot to me:

... Atari 2600
... Commodore 64
... Sega Master System
... Sega Megadrive
... Super Nintendo Entertainment System
... Nintendo 64
... Playstation

I always wished that I had a PC-Engine and a Neo-Geo though.

Hmmm ok, let's go for Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Playstation

...now, if you allowed Japanese PCs / consoles my choice may have been a bit different with the inclusion of FM Towns and X68000
