I feel like 6502's kinda spoiled me in that I'll never be able to learn any other assembly languages. I've tried to dabble in Z80 and 8086 but the syntax just looks so scary. Kinda like how you'll never be as proficient at a foreign language as you are your native one. I can't even imagine what programming directly for a modern day x64/AMD CPU would be like.
x86-64 is actually really nice for application programmers. Good number of registers, tons of addressing modes, nice flat memory model, pretty much everything you wanna do has an instruction for it.
