I'm certain you will be overwhelmed with lists :) I arrange game-nights 
on a semiregular basis with two friends and we focus on retro stuff. We 
play mostly on consoles but on the C64 we recently played:

Last Ninja 2, Rock'n'Bolt, Thrust, Commando, Mancopter, Delta.

I can heartily recommend the little known Rock'N'Bolt and Mancopter. 
Easy to get into and play for a short while. Great music :)

With a little work you can get the original tetris running on a PDP-11, 
real or emulated.
