Make Video Games Group: What's your favorite Microchip? Answered
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?
