Commodore 64 Classic

I don't recall too many of these games, but seems interesting.  I imagine there will be several more of these announced for various platforms.

Hell, yeah-- "California Games". I spent a lot of time as a kid being really terrible at that.

If this thing came with those SSR Dungeons & Dragons games like "Pool of Radiance", I would be all over it.

My brain just exploded with nostalgia.

If Electronic Arts would release some kind of USB drive with their line of C64 games on it, I'd preorder both. Otherwise, it's just a cute idea.

IMPOSSIBLE MISSION!

I used to play Tapper on my friend's Commodore 64. Now I am an alcoholic.

Yeah, looks like licensing issues would keep the best C64 games away from that mini. EA, LucasArts, Infocom, Sierra, etc...

Pretty much. There's definitely some good stuff in there, but they're batting about 0.300 even assuming the emulation is good. Like every attempt to revive the Commodore brand, I can only assume that it'll make the rounds on the tech news sites for a week before sputtering out in a puff of legal issues, financial malfeasance, and/or just plain ol' apathy.

The Amstrad was purchased by my parents (damn fine machine with its color monitor and disc drive), so I didn't really have a choice. I remember reading about the Amiga in computer magazines at the time and it seemed like a mythical beast to me.

Still my favorite computer. So many games better than anything consoles would see for years, plus a working windowed interface about a decade before Windows caught up. In 512k of memory.

 

But the C64 was the machine that convinced me to save for months and buy an Amiga. I still remember going over to a buddy's house and setting up the Adventure Construction Set, which let you build as much of an RPG world and rules as you wanted, then hit Generate and VOILA! (a few hours later) you had a randomly generated dungeon crawler to play. I did like my friend, but in all honesty I probably liked his C64 more...

This was as close to holy writ as my friends and I got.

 

But yeah, beyond that and California Games, I'm not seeing much that excites me.  I wasn't really expecting to see the D&D games, but there were plenty of great RPGs on the C64 that could have made the cut.

Just so you guys know, I would waste any of you at any of the following games.

Good god we could never get the hang of weightlifting in World Games...

I was awesome at it. Sumo and log rolling always gave me the shits though.

I was king of Ballblazer.

 

 

Also not too shabby at Archon.

Wizball is the greatest game ever made, and I was the master.



Crap, that hipster meme guy looks embarassingly much like me now...

Is World Games the one that included the greatest Olympic event ever, the biathalon? Because, sorry, I am the king of that one... Because I'm the only guy in the world who bothered to get good at it. You ski and then you shoot!

...

Those Impossible Mission games are some truth in advertising, by the way. I remember them being really frickin hard.

Probably skip this one, but would definitely be interested if they did an Amiga classic (or failing that, Atari ST). And I would be all over a Sinclair Spectrum Classic.
post #22 of 23
If they include Gumshoe I'll buy 3.

I only played the first version and it wasn't in that one but maybe in a sequel or something.

Did anyone play Feud on the Commodore? Used to love that on my Amstrad and am surprised it's never been revived as it was great. You were a wizard and had to defeat your rival by running around collecting ingredients for spells and throwing them in a cauldron (whilst he did the same thing). I remember how the ingredients for the best spells were located in a specific garden tended by this maniac who would chase you around and beat you to death if you didn't escape quickly enough. Good times!
