I understand what you mean by "different aspects to "efficiency", but, like you suggested, I'll still look into micro-controllers.

@JimmyHoffa Hmm. When you first said this stuff to me, I got angry and decided to ignore you, but I've thought about it, and I guess you're right. Thank you for setting me straight. Still wanna program these old systems though, seems like lots of fun ;)

@JimmyHoffa I'm sure that while programming crummier machines will not improve my ability to program efficiently in some aspects (taking advantage of modern computer's abilities), it will certainly help quite alot in other areas.

@gnat The GBA had 256 kilobytes of RAM. I never thought I'd say this but "I don't like the idea of using the Raspberry PI, it's too good".

comment Resources on learning to program in machine code?
@AceofSpades A great way to easily build CPUs and CPU components (eg. an adder) is with redstone in Minecraft, I would recommend that. I've started working on some simple machines in Minecraft, and it has highly boosted my understanding of the theory and logic behind computers.

@tdammers What exactly do you mean by "the industry keeps heading roughly the same direction"?
