Of all the old computers my dad had cluttering up our house when I was a kid, nothing intrigued me more than the disused Commodore 64 in the corner. It is still a beloved pinnacle for PC gaming, and it's easy to see why: It could use a variety of colors then-current Atari and Apple computers simply struggled to utilize.
A very dedicated C64 fan developed this video showing what the final level in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City might look like if Rockstar 1) existed in the '80s and 2) made Commodore games. The best part of this project is that the little sprites have moving mouths that sort of match the length of their text bars!
I'm easily amused by well-animated sprites….
