Thanks! The cover is original. I had to travel quite rural from where I live to snatch that up.The leather cover on the 64 is excellent. Great choices of games.
Nice! I wish I found some of these at a garage sale.I like the game boxes on display. I picked up a few of these in a garage sale last year and plan to do the same thing!
Haha. Oh, I'm just showing off the parts that are tidy. I agree with @jafir
Thanks! I don't have a leather cover for my 2600, but I have the bottom shelf to the right hand side of the TV dedicated to it.That is a beautiful setup, nice TV too. I like that you have the Commodore sitting out with the leather cover on it too - Nice touch. I do the same with my 2600.
Thaanks. I never played Bard's Tale or Ultima IV back in the day, but I have heard since that they were great games. Pretty much all the games I have on display in the room were my go-to favourite games back then. Although, I do have a bunch more not on proper display, including Lode Runner. I'm in the process of putting together a Frankenstein Win98/XP PC with parts ranging from the early 90s to early 2000s that is a mixture of representative parts I had back in the day, as well as parts I always wish I had. I have almost all the pieces now. I'm looking forward to the headache of putting it all together.That is a sweet TV - and a proper homage to the c64. Not sure if you played Bard's Tale or Ultima IV - those stand out as my two favorites from the era, with Lode Runner of course, and Karateka and Summer Games (and nice shout-out to pitfall in the corner..). Great times - epic machine. I like your idea of going back and collecting your favorite games. I've thought about doing something similar, but with computer hardware - going back and setting up a working representative computer that I remember from each era. I've gotten rid of so many computers over the years that now seem like solid gold on ebay. I made the mistake of selling my c64 at a garage sale in the 90's. Though I still have some of the game save disks ... just in case.
Haha. With a TV in a cabinet that heavy, it only made/makes sense. I'm pretty sure it's even on wheels.It seems weird to me having the TV on the floor.
