Ahhh the C64 was also my first real game machine as well.

It was funny listening to this because as you guys were listing out your top 10's I was yelling "ARCHON DAMNIT!" and then you mentioned it.

Other notiables:
- Raid on Bungling Bay
- Ghostbusters
- Summer Olypics
- Aztec Challenge

Great stuff. I never had a C64, I was a Apple II+er.

Still alot of the games you mentioned I played.
Temple of Asphi.
SSI - Gary Grisby. He was my hero. I bought every game he made.

Oh, and great job on VW100. Awesome skits.

Well my meories were fuzzy about the era of the c64 until this show, thanks for reviving them for me. Awesome skit Jonathan, you did that stargate thing just for me didn't you? Well I will be sure to pimp your show among the Ancients and see how they like it. :) Great job on the Virgin worlds skit too, that was really classic man, you have awesome talent. :)

UO show, UO show, UO show! :P

What memories .. nice ..

Troy, i think the Tandy Computer you mentioned was a TRS-80, this was also one of our first computers at school.

And you never played M.U.L.E. .. what a shame, it was till today one of the most inspiring strategy games of all time. Dani Bunten also created "Seven Citys of Gold" and the follow up "Heart of Afrika". He, or should i say she, has also inspired many of the great designers namely Will Wright and Sid Meier.

You could make a whole show only about Dani, trust me ;-)

Ra's younger cousin chuck gave him his first 2 computers while he was growing up. The TI 99/4a and then the Atari 800. Chuck wants to hear about those 2 systems.

'A Fellow Copier Tech!' by Vhayne

That's really cool that you're also a copier tech, AND even a Sharp tech haha. I've been doing this for about 5 years now. I just went to school on the MX7000. Big, difficult machine lol. I've found that having a family (wife and 3 kids under 4 years old lol), and working this job, that I barely have time for any gaming at all anymore, much less an mmo. I continue to try all the time though. I searched for an email address to send this to, but never could find one, so I'm posting it hear. It would be cool to talk shop sometime, and talk about mmos.

'Good Country for an Old Gamer' by silviad

Episode 10 was a slice of heaven for me. I'm a 59 yo gamer who bought his 8-year-old son a C64 in 1988 and then found himself staying up until 2 or 3 AM playing the likes of SimCity, Gold Box games and Kampfgruppe. Some nice irony here since I discovered Jonathan's gem while searching for content to fill the ipod mini my now 28 year-old son bought me for Christmas.

'What a cool podcast! And I havent even listened yet!!' by coppertopper
Submitted on 2008-02-23 12:49:09 CST
Seriously, I just read the comments and saw names like 'Mule' and 'Archon' and especially '7 cities of gold' and the way way back machine kicked into gear. I played almost all of those on the C64 at a friends house. Oh those minutes waiting for the cassette to (hopefully) load the game!

My first PC gaming experience was when my brother borrowed a friends Apple II+, and in one evening that stretched to the wee morning hours, we finished 'Castle Wolfenstein'. The next was on my very own Apple IIe, playing 'Wizardry', trying to get the fabled sword drop (whose name escapes me but my buddy had it).

What I remember most was the awesome box artwork and original packaging that came with the early EA games. I think that ended with 'The Adventure Construction Kit'.
