Commodore C64 Game Highlights

Updated on April 23, 2013

Highlights of the Commodore C64 Gaming Period

An integral area of the computer industry marked its anniversary now because the Commodore 64 turned 3 decades old. :)

It is widely credited with assisting to popularize PCs. Where most systems at that time were sold in electronics shops or even in dedicated computer stores, the C64 was sold at general retailers, exposing many to PCs the very first time.

It's time to show the best games for the Commodore 64 from that time.  I've compiled a list of best ever Commodore 64/128 games of that period!

Are you ready for it?

The game is famous for featuring sampled speech uncommon during the early 1980s. The speech samples include "Hey taxi!", "Pad one please" (and similar samples for different pads), "Thanks" and "Up please". They're said in a number of voice pitches, creating the feeling of different taxi customers.

      These old school games bring back so many good memories. We didn't have a Commodore system growing up but one of my friends did. Good times! Squid Angel blessings for you.
