General Development "In this tiny ebook I'm going to show you how to get started writing 6502 assembly language. [...] I think it's valuable to have an understanding of assembly language. Assembly language is the lowest level of abstraction in computers - the point at which the code is still readable. Assembly language translates directly to the bytes that are executed by your computer's processor. If you understand how it works, you've basically become a computer magician." More of this, please.

Watch some recent C64 demos and you will surely change your opinion ;)

What C64 demos output is more the work of VIC-II and SID.

Anyway, they don't change anything in what ilovebeer said - nobody seriously targets 3-decade old computers any more.
Plus, they are just that, demos - not actually useful applications or interactive games, which basically looked nowhere close.
