what are some good c64 games? I want to get into c64 emulation but I dont know where to start. I played wolfenstein and liked it quiet a bit though.
Enforcer's a pretty good shoot 'em up.
Psycho Pigs is odd, but a blast to play. It's a port of the arcade game Butasan.
Exile is a gorgeous Metroidvania-ish adventure game, but it's very difficult without a guide. http://www.solutions.c64.org/
I also recommend Renegade 1 & 2 (actually the prequel to River City Ransom), the library of Epyx, Wizball and Deflektor.
Pirates! was always my all time favorite. That game is simply amazing, be sure to get the Nostalgia release.
International Karate + for best fighting game on the computer.
Bruce Lee for a very fun and short game which you can play in co-op.
Elite for a mindblowing experience.
Impossible Mission for puzzle platforming and digitized voice.
Project Firestart for possibly the first survival horror game.
Again, get the Nostalgia release for any of those if they're available.
This is one of the few cases where "just google it" is really the best answer. There are so many good games that offering suggestions without more information is pointless. And so many of those games were done better on the Amiga that playing them on the 64 is also pointless.
Oh fuck off I came to discuss things and I want to hear about what it has to offer from people with personal experience. I know you grew up emulating everything so you think this board is one big emulator circle jerk and we all got our taste in games from e-celebs like you.
If you liked Mayhem in Monsterland, you'll enjoy Creatures.
I fucking loved Spellbound as a kid. Played it for hours and hours.
is c64 definitive version or am I better off with the amiga? I was planning on getting rick dangerous going on my raspberry pi cause Its a great little game but does the commodore have anything to set it apart, i know the graphics wont be as nice but I dont care about that.
Then google does help. It tells you you're either emulating the wrong system or asking the wrong question.
There are no "hidden gems" slugger. Every gem was made long before you were born and has been thoroughly unhidden by now.
Maybe if you stopped being a typical youngling cunt and accepted the advice of people who have been here more than a summer you'd get the info you're looking for.
I've been here since the beginning and I would like to start getting into old computers, saying there are no hidden gems is retarded. A game that is really good and rarely gets mentioned is a hidden gem despite if a few people already uncovered it. It doesn't have to be completely undiscovered. Why don't you stop being an elitist faggot
nobody thinks you're cooland just bugger off and go play some games? I just wanted to know some good c64 games cause google just wants to show me lemmings and shit that was also on a million other systems too.
this game looks really cool. Thanks for sharing.
The following games defined my childhood. They were the best times of my life:
The Bard's Tale II-III
Pool of Radiance - Curse of the Azure Bonds
The Castles of Dr. Creep
I just got a c64 from the local tip. It came with a 1541 floppy drive and a cassette reader. I'm having some trouble getting this shit to display on my crt but I'll get there.
Pretty good timing on this thread really. Can't wait to get into some sick rpgs.
anything have a good open ended world with lots of secrets similar to the first zelda game? I just kind of want to wander around in a comfy old video game world and discover new things. c64 seems like a good platform cause computers had the memory to do that.
Why is this concept even a thing? If you're not into a specific system then all the good games are hidden gems to you, but they're neither hidden nor forgotten.
Most games I can think of are like Falcom's Dragon Slayer which Zelda took inspiration from, probably not what you're looking for.
The only ones with open world that come to mind are Elite and Wasteland, but both aren't action-adventure titles.
Try maybe the Druid series.
Fair warning, if you're going to play Exile be sure to find a good version as there are numerous cracks floating around, some of them with a bug that prevents you from finishing the game.
Mom's hairy black dong with authentic nigger pubic hair
Peanut's fucking shit eating adventure
The quest of the cockless, shiteating politically correct fuck
Just to name a few.
I always liked Flimbo's Quest. The graphics (especially the parallax scrolling) and music blew me away at the time too. Even though the pixels are the size of postage stamps, you don't really notice.
Flimbo's Quest. Everyone calls it an average platform game, yet it has some of the most impressive graphics and music on the C64, and buttery smooth controls unlike most other games on the system. And everyone keeps remixing the stupid loader theme instead of the baller nautical theme or the one that plays during the scrolling demo.
I've always enjoyed me some Black Magic--the Dark Souls of adventure games.
No, seriously. Assblasted mods deleting posts or not, you were the victim of sexual assault at the hands of a family member. There's no other explanation for this level of autism.
Head back to /v/.
Beach Head 2 (Co-op is a blast)
There's a ton of awesome C64 games out there. My problem is my C64 from 1986 recently packed it in, so I'm down to emulation too at the moment
