Make Video Games Group: What's your favorite Microchip?
I started a new group. In the near future I hope and plan to write some video games
for Microchips (PICs or other microcontrollers) such that the chip is connected to a
joystick and a video monitor. I do not write PC games. I would like to know what
chips are popular and cheap and easy to program for you so that any games I
write would be easy for you to Make. I have a Hydra/Propeller and a PIC programmer.
It is my impression that PICs are cheap and popular... compared to AVR's and such.
I used to write games in the 1980's and miss that hobby.
What chips do you suggest are good to write games for?
What I mean is, what chips can you program;
I would like you to be able to Make and play any that I or others write!
Use "Rickard Gunee PIC Tetris" as a typical example of the "console",
(but expect more interesting games, if any!)
which will be on a breadboard, or on the Hydra Game System i got at Make Store.
So tell me, What's your favorite PIC chip?
