Weirdness: What if Grand Theft Auto V Was a Commodore 64 Game?

Grand Theft Auto V isn’t a Commodore 64 game, but it would probably control a darn sight better if it was. Perhaps acknowledging that fact, Hungarian animator Balazs Kalocsai has produced a trailer showing what the game would look like on the old-school hardware. This is based on one of the open world epic’s early trailers, and is a pretty accurate recreation. Well, apart from the lack of loading screens, of course.

That was pretty funny. They even got the font right. I was one of the lucky few who actually had a 5 1/4" floppy drive with my C64. Loading games from cassette was for losers!

Used to buy them single sided (cheaper) and then notch them with a box cutter to make them double sided. Single sided was just a marketing rip-off as the internal disk was identical. Oh those wen't the days.

Yes, unfortunately I am that old...anyway, back to Watch_Dogs.

@charlesnarles Now with USB drives, I would be amazed if most people under 20 even knew what a floppy disk was. A recent conversation between a close friend of mine and his daughter went as follows:
"Dad, what's a record?"
"Its a thing that stores and plays music. You know like a CD, but bigger."
"What's a CD?"
"Damn, I'm old."
