Playing with the Commodore 64

The Photo of the Day comes to us from -foxhusky- and it is a picture of his nephew way back in 1987 playing games on his C64. This photo really takes me back to my days sitting in a ergonomically punishing chair with my hand almost bleeding from using a jostick for 10 hours straight — It was paradise.

    Is that actually a Commodore 128? I realize it’s essentially the same machine – but in a slightly more modern casing.

    Hi, thanks for picking my photo as ‘Photo of the Day’. Also thanks for the comments ;-)) The computer in the photo is a Commodore 64 II.

    Oh, I see. The C128 had function keys at the top and a numeric keyboard. Never knew about the Commodore 64 II or the 64c – but I love the look of it!

    Peter, never heard of the Commodore 64 “II” Perhaps you are confusing that with the Commodore 64 C? Or was that how the C was marketed in countries outside the U.S. ?
