What People Used to Say About The Atari 2600

Do you think people get emotional about today's gaming consoles? Have you noticed that the people running PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo sometimes say weird things? Or make some bold claims?

Well, this is what people used to say about the Atari. (Retro)

I still have mine buried somewhere. I'm proud of the fact that I have been gaming since the beginning.

I also have fond memories on my old 2600. The battles my brother and I used to have with Combat. :)

I started gaming on the NES but man do I wish I was there at the beginning.

NES blew the 2600, and all it's competitors at the time, out of the water. Still great nostalgic feeling about the 2600 though. Looking back it really wasn't that great, and the games were mostly crap, but it was exciting.

I got an Atari 2600 in the late 80's, also had an NES obviously, but I have some great memories of Space Invaders and some Star Wars games on the 2600.

Sad to think that a lack of quality control over the games really killed that brand and the industry. Back then, anyone could make a game for the console and didn't have to pay Atari anything for it to be sold and on the console.

Things were so much simpler back then, even though I'm only in my late 20's, I miss some of the innocence from those days.

My first machine was the Sega Master System, but I always wanted one of these when I was a kid too simply because I knew someone else with one heh

Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap is still one of favourite games.
