I had fajitas for my birthday dinner, that was pretty good? Well okay they had chicken and I think technically "fajitas" are only fajita if they're beef but you know what i mean unless you don't in which case this clarification doesn't help

Bubsy 3D. Maybe it'd actually be playable.

Awesome Possum... kicks Dr. Machino's Butt!

Oh don't get me wrong, it is objectively a terrible, terrible game. But it's like, everything bad about mascot platformers put into a single box. A mascot who looks nothing like a possum and never stops talking, all lines which a middle-aged marketing executive thinks 90's kids think is "cool". An ellipsis in the title, for some reason. A terribly shoehorned in environmentalist message that probably inspired more kids to become oil company executives than to save the planet. Clunky gameplay. Giant levels where everything looks the same. The problem of almost all Sonic the Hedgehog clones that the physics encourage to to run fast and then you just hit an enemy you didn't see.

If "so bad it's good" applies to video games, it applies to this one. It is an entire era, an entire genre, in one plastic box.

Least favorite thing about the Commodore 64?

The fact that cartridge games died out so early in the system's life. Cartridges are cool, damnit. I suspect the only reason there were any cartridge games was just to use leftover MAX machine games like Jupiter Lander.

Oh, also BASIC 2.0 is clunky, the cursor key layout makes Apple's look reasonable, and the case color of the pre-64C models makes them look like they need retrobright right off the assembly line.

Oh and the fact that they used a slow 1 MHz 6502 when Atari was already using a 1.7MHz one years earlier. It was justifiable on the Apple ][ and VIC-20 because those were clocked in such a way that the CPU could interleave memory access with the video circuitry, but on the C64 they had to pause the CPU to give the VIC-II enough RAM access (the "bad lines"), which really makes the slow clock speed even more annoying... though I'm not sure if MOS 6502s from the time could go to 1.7MHz or if it was just the second-source providers Atari (and later Nintendo, who also used a 1.7MHz one) used.

Oh and don't even get me started on the disk drive solution that required a whole separate computer and was barely faster than tape-- wait, you just asked for one thing, not for me to start ranting about the C64... sorry :< I swear it's still a good computer

The original "talk to this particular team rocket member" Mew glitch. I know, I know, it's old hat now. But like, with so many fake Pokęmon rumors, it was amazing that something that sounded like another hoax was real. It's iconic.

Some cats may be non-canon, but they are still valid.

They are :( Though maybe it's for the best, I don't have room for another computer and really it's just a glorified word processor...

least favorite thing about the amiga?

The OCS suffered from a fatal flaw of being unable to have its chip RAM expanded without rewiring the circuit board; low RAM is a big problem that's shared by many computers of the time like the Apple Macintosh, the difference is that thanks to the chip RAM concept, expanding the RAM didn't solve that. This "multiple memory types" flaw also plagued the IBM PC, but it was much more of a self-imposed footgun on the Motorola 68000. This is the only flaw I have to run into on my Amiga 1000, so it's definitely the least favorite for me.

Some follow-up flaws, to be fair to the Commodore 64:
  1. The Amiga 2000, Amiga 3000, and Amiga 4000 cases are ugly
  2. Having NTSC and PAL differences when other computer lines had moved past that
  3. The Amiga 4000 not being a superset of the Amiga 3000 (but don't worry you won't be able to get ahold of either)
  4. The Commodore CDTV being the best-looking Amiga (finally something that isn't beige) but also the least usable
  5. The next-best looking Amiga is the Amiga 600, which is also one of the less usable
  6. The Amiga fanbase putting entirely new FPGA-based computers inside of vintage cases and calling it a processor accelerators
  7. Commodore getting rid of the rainbow checkmark after the Amiga 1000
