@beegrrl I can't do any of those things because I was born in 1980.
@wxcafe shidded to death
@bulkington @wintgenstein Well, yes, it was due to technical (well, monetary) considerations. But! Compared to the SG-1000 it still looks weird, and by the time it hit the US, the SMS came right after and that had far nicer graphics.
SG-1000 didn't really have any good games, unless you're really into old SEGA arcade games, of course.
@lyliawisteria Yup. But if you can throw a bit of RAM at them, even old processors can do quite a bit.
@wintgenstein It's a huge part of it! You can do a LOT with just 16 fixed colors if they're the right ones. See: the PICO-8. But the NES's palette is god-awful because it's based around being cheap and using tricks.
@wintgenstein It's the awful palette.
@ponfarr they are it's science.
@dreamsofcheese ok yeah takis came out in 1999 the year after I finished HS.
@dreamsofcheese pretty sure takis weren't in the average supermarket here when I was in HS
