Heh yeah, the C64 was the lazy man's
computer! WAY too many commercial games and software for it.
I started out on a Commodore PET 2008. If you wanted a game, you had to write it yourself! And I did, I wrote DOZENS of games for that computer. Then I moved onto a VIC 20 which was truly mine (The PET was my fathers). The VIC had a small number of games but again, if you wanted anything else you wrote it yourself (Till towards the end when commercial games on tape became more widespread)
Sometimes to get a new game you had to type in 10 pages of code from a magazine!
Then came the C64 and commercial software was in full swing and you didn't have to lift a finger to peek or poke again if you didn't want too... tsk tsk.
