Infographic and Sizzle Reel Highlight 40 Years of Gaming, Released with Details of Special Giveaways and Events.
Ahh, interesting. Although I lived in europe and got first a spectrum 48k, I later got a clone of this with 1000's of games. Atari was very adept of 2 player games which was awesome, 150 euros costed me at around the early 90's. I always enjoyed the frog game with flies and the cowboy duel lol
I had spiderman on mine, it was awesome, i was a red square that swung on a 10 pixel rope between gaps, it had little else to it :-p but I loved it non the less lol.
The sounds were terrible, I also recall playing superman as you mentioned spiderman. http://www.youtube.com/watc... nice thing was getting in to a phone booth and turn in to super! Everything else was a disaster ^^
Spider man right here :D gotta love and hate those sound FX though, man we've come a long way in gaming lol.
We owe a lot to these guys :-)
Ah Atari, how your era was gold
without atari the gaming world would not be what it is today
Great article mate, Atari helped make games what they are today :)
I wonder what the games industry would be like if they were still putting out consoles?
Thanks for the memories Atari! You enriched my childhood immensely. Because of you I not only game today in my 40's, but I made a career in IT. From all the money I've spent on hardware and games over the years, Nintendo and Sony owe you as much thanks as I do LOL!
