I have to be careful, because there is a range of ages here and not everyone would have been part of the group of people who would have been C64 owners.  Some are just too young while others spent their youth chasing wood hoops with a stick.

However, for those that didn't...

Impossible Mission, Sword of Fargoal (prolly the best D&D game for the system), Yie Ar Kung-Fu, Archon (a chess-type game, no?), Pool of Radiance (I think it was an official D&D game - pretty good too), 7 cities of gold, Bard's tale.

I think the Ghostbusters game was good too.

The Ghostbusters game was the shit!

Sword of Fargoal was pretty awesome too, it had live traps on screen which was new.
