Here I've been tasked with selling a Commadore 64 and a bunch of games. How much do you reckon this lot is worth, and is there anywhere better to sell this kind of thing than eBay? I don't really know anything about this kinda thing, it's before my time, but the bloke who used to own it died so I guess it's my job to sell it.

Sell the two computers separately. The Plus 4 is rarer and might be more valuable to collectors.

Are you able to test them at all? I'm definitely no expert on C64 but I've bought a couple in recent years and time doesn't seem to be too kind to them.

You've got a few Spectrum games in those photos too, so you'll want to split those out.

I would find a Facebook group (or reddit or similar) for the systems, and ask on there if anyone wants them, they might pay a bit more as they are aware of the value etc.

Yep, this. Neither is hugely desirable but they’ll easily find a new home on eBay.
Separate them out by system and start it at a tenner. There are enough buyers that you’ll get bids up to a realistic value.
