The Angry Video Game Nerd

Commodore 64 was one of the most popular and best-selling home computers of the 80's. It had a vast library of games available in floppy disk and cassette tape formats. During the Great Video Game Crash of 1983, Commodore attempted to break into the market which had mostly been lost to Atari. Commodore also had an earlier system called the VIC-20, which competed with the Apple II and Atari 400/500. The first to review was Superman: The Man of Steel which was nearly beforehand on the Superman 64 episode. He also reviews Transformers as a cassette tape cartridge add-on.

In the Dracula-themed episode, the Nerd is seen reviewing a game for the VIC-20 called The Count, which was made by Scott Adams who had programmed a series of "Adventure" games that involved mapping and typing as opposed to making a character fight. It also made numerous appearances of the Commodore 64 mocking itself as a PC/computer, with reviews of AVGN Games, Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing, and Chex Quest.

In 2021, Commodore 64 re-appeared and reviewed on two main AVGN apperances on Episode #198, and the Freddy and Jason episode. Commodore 64 also became the main hub for the 200th episode, with game designer Sam Beddoes helping to work with the re-creation of the Back to the Future game.
