Commodore 64 Week

While others had Atari or Nintendo…we had a C64!

According to the internets and as per C64 uber-fan Glen McNamee, the first week of August is now Commodore 64 Week!  To me this is a time when gamers who were not perhaps raised by other popular consoles such as the Atari, Intellivision, Nintendo, etc. but rather brought up on the game machine/personal computer that was the Commodore 64.  Thousands upon thousands of games and software were available for the C64, and I was privileged to have played my share.  While it was not all rosy, controllers and game stability were an ever-present issue for me, it was still a great way to game and has formed my gaming tastes to this day.

To celebrate C64 week I am going to feature a personal favourite game or gaming series on my blog each day.  I think that would be a fun way to celebrate and reminisce about the C64 glory days.  I already have several ideas swirling around in my head.

If you want something to look at right now, I would highly recommend a couple of posts I did previously on Maniac Mansion and Raid on Bungling Bay that feature post-mortem’s from the game’s creators at this year’s GDC.  Again, stay tuned this week for more Commodore!
