Well, to introduce myself, I suppose I should say I am a collector interested in vintage electronics from the old-era, why? Because they generally embody a better design both in the style of the design and in the quality of the hardware, and perhaps most importantly are still useful and certainly fun, in the case of vintage micro-computers they offer all of the basic functions that we use on modern computers today-that is to say with the right hardware and software you could even write a term-paper on a Tandy Color Computer. Furthermore, they also play great old-style/arcade games, so they are great gaming machines. The second generation of hardware, in terms of video games and computers was for me at least the best era, so many simple but innovative games made in that era-in short I think there was much more uniqueness in the design of games. As for the modern era-games seem to follow a predetermined pattern and consensus, in other words genres and franchises-in short what is successful, the modern era seems stagnant, it is just a game of follow the leader. As for my interest in CoCo, I am interested in it because of the reasons cited above and so I just acquired a MK 3 Color Computer, but I have
no games for it.........so what I would really like is some basic game
code so I can enter the the game code itself so that I can start
enjoying it-computers like the Commodore Vic-20 and The Coco are really
great gaming computers, and that is my main interest-the type of games I
like are arcade-style games, Like Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, Pacman
and so on. Also I am also interested in the history of the Machine and as
such would be interested in material like Consumer reports or Ad's or
other material produced-magazine articles or general articles especially
those containing examples of game code, and introducing the new CoCo.
These material are desired on the subject of CoCo, articles made at the
height of The Color Computer's popularity from the early 80's to the early 90's........
