California Games
It was almost like the olympics but California style with surfing, skateboarding, and even hacky sack.
I played it on commodore 64 from a floppy drive for hours.

Was that the Gorilla on the Surfboard game? Or am I thinking of something else?

I remember California Games! And wasn't there an Olympic Games game too? My father used to bring home an Apple IIE from his school every summer, and a bunch of games with no instructions (shhh....they were pirated). My brother and I would have to figure out how to play each game. We loved California Games.

California Games...
I never liked sports games, but that game, as well as Summer Games, Winter Games, Skate or Die, Ski or die, and other, make me all nostalgic.

I have it on NES. BMX was always my favourite. Trying a risky backflip knowing it would end the game if you messed it up (which was often). Another thing I remember from it was when you falled off your surfboard sometimes a shark would come up to the sound of the Jaws "duh-duhs". Jaws of course looked....odd. Gonna try and get a pic of it somewhere.
