# I always preferred the c64
but nowadays the Spectrum wins in nostalgia stakes - their games look nicely retro when c64 ones often just look old.

# I never saw the C64 as a kid
I had a Speccy +2A (with built in tape deck) and a friend had the Amstrad CPC464 (he even had the full colour monitor too the yuppie).

Needs more Last Ninja 2 :D

# Does anyone remember the CPC664
It was a 6128 with green-screen if I remember. I had one and think it was an import. I was that trendy!

# I had a 664
It was the short-lived precursor of the 6128. The 6128 started life as a US-only model, but Amstrad soon dropped the 664 and sold the 6128 everywhere.

I thought the 664 was great - better keyboard layout, plus the AMSDOS ROM was socketed so you could remove it and replace it with something better.

Why does my brain remember all this rubbish?

# The only game I genuinely miss from the Commodore years is 'Friday The 13th'.
The list of Spectrum titles is far more comprehensive.

# I'd probably go for Rainbow Islands
That did actually use the extra colour well.

# That looks a bit muggy nowadays.
My memories aren't of C64 games being so brown!
