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.
