Before the Super Nintendo, and even before the original NES arrived, I cut my gaming teeth on the Commodore 64. It was sold as one of the first personal computers, but to many kids of the '80s, it was instead their first gaming console. I have many fond memories of the C64, but thanks to the C64 Mini, I'm also reminded that pre-NES gaming was kind of terrible.

Unlike many of my friends, my first video game console wasn't the original NES. It was a Commodore 64, which my parents bought as our first home computer. It could do a few useful things, but the C64 was always first and foremost a gaming system in our house. So while I find the SNES Classic Edition intriguing, this miniature Commodore 64 really hits a nostalgic nerve for me.
