the Internet Archive has created a repository of over 15,000 games for the Commodore 64 that will play via an emulator through your browser.

You can actually buy an official (I think) Commodore 64 mini already;

https://thec64.com/


Just like rumble packs, a control stick, motion controls and mini-consoles it seems once Nintendo puts an idea out the rest of the console business jumps right behind them (not always for the best #motioncontrols)

I never played a commodore 64 and assumed the games are painful examples of early gen video games (like playing an intellovision or atari) but a quick look at the pages shows me I'm wrong and it was more like a NES (with a terrible looking controller )

That was the first machine we had at home. I had it and the tv it was plugged into in my bedroom, which at the time was almost unheard of for a kid to have in his room.
I played gorf so much and is really the first game I remember playing.

Archon Chess was tons of dumb fun.
