One of my biggest annoyances: people say 8bit to describe anything remotely pixellated. These morons could look at a black and white computer image and say 8 bit

    Best that you don't flip your bit over it, they probably can't count past 255 anyway...

    Give them a book on Boolean Algebra, and they'll be set 😂

    A _fully_ 8bit machine would actually be quite limited. Mainly your address range. If your address range is 8bit, then you can only have 256 instructions 😥

    I guess you already knew this...

    "Pixelated" isn't in some people's vocabulary. Very nice word for describing something blocky. 🤷🤦

    I always say retro or pixelated

    "God, I love the retro style of this game"

    @AlgoRythm I'd say that there is a difference between retro and pixellated. Retro encompasses the whole game, and pixellated is just the graphics.

    Well, I use "8-bit", even though I know it isn't technically correct... it just suits it well imo.
    Note: i use the term "8-bit" even for chiptune music.
