Why did so many 80s computer games have god awful collision detection?
Shut up. Just shut the fuck up
>>7719208Fuck you. I especially don't understand it in the C64's case because the VIC-II chip supports pixel perfect collision detection in hardware.
>>7719213Try asking someone who made games back then
>>7719217I made games back then and all my games had perfect collision detection
>>7719241Post your games.
>>7719259All the best ones were programmed by me
>>7719198sometimes performance reasons, but mostly laziness or ignorance.
hitboxes are better than pixel-contact detection
>>7719213c64's sprite collision detection worked well. you're just shit at games or the games you played were shit.
>>7719198A lot of games were made by amateur programmers.
