13,156 Commodore 64 Programs Available in the Internet Archive Now
Do you like vintage computing? Love it, but lack software?
The Internet Archive is the place to look for vintage software. Whether you bought a vintage box at a garage sale or are looking to use an emulator on your laptop, you can get to 8-bit graphic goodness quickly.
For Commodore 64s, there are currently 13,156 programs to choose from. You can read more about the Commodore 64 history here. In 2011, 17 years after it was taken off the market, research showed that brand recognition for the model was still at 87%.
