Just having a go of "Mercenary" again and it's like I can taste being 12. Still love it, I'm not as good at it as I once was, but it still holds up.

Given the world we live in today, what C64 games do you still play? What holds up?

I still regularly play Citadel, Impossible Mission, PSI-5 and Choplifter!. There's just something particularly moody about them that still gives me the tingles.

I'll probably buy a MMC when it can do multiloads actually.

(unless I missed that improvement)

Hi Mayhem,
The MMc can do some multiloads with the non official bios, but it is a bit unstable as yet (mainly ide fixed games). Fingers crossed the dfi format is worked on for easy conversion from d64 to dfi. Elvira II works well as a demo.

Ps will give you a mail about the last missing Nms`s (got it down to about 10 issues now) :wink:

Still play Defender of the Crown, Rambo 2, and most text adventure games after buying the original box from ebay (we didnt have that many, in fact ANY, original games in Greece back in the 80s :cry: )
