I graduated from a C64....

Hi all. Just starting to get into this emulation thing. I started my computing life with a C64 in about 1985, and then an A500 with an extra 512KB on a card in about 1989.

I have decided it is time to relive a bit of my misspent youth on some classic games that I never quite got around to finishing. There is just an itch there that the PS3 doesn't quite scratch.

PurpleDog.

Hi & welcome, I think many of us want to have another go at some of the great games from our youth.

For me personally, the best thing has been trying out games I missed first time around. It is great discovering some of the magic of those games I missed as well as trying out some old friends

The PS3 and 360 still have their place, I see my retro gaming as a complement to them.
