Exploring some less than cherished Atari memories via some lesser-known bad movie tie-ins.
I actually liked the AT-AT game when I was a kid. Of course I was young and stupid back then.
I did too but E.T. was absolutely horrible.
Indeed it was. But every single game on this list (except maybe Superman (I honestly don't remember it)) was a blast to play. I spent hours playing them as a kid. This guy is just looking for hits on his page by being "controversial." Gee, never seen that on an article posted to N4G. Way to go, Nick. Not original at all.
This was the time when companies could make a quick buck on games just in 3 months or less!
AVGN will look to here for reference.
It's good to see some original gamers here. My three games from the Atari 2600 is Popeye, Fast Eddie and Pitfall
Yes, same here. I was starting to feel old here. One of my favorite 2600 games was Adventure. Pitfall was right up there though.
Forgot all about poppie
Pitfall was so much fun. And the sequel wasn't too bad either.
What?!? ESB was a great Atari 2600 game! The author is definitely not looking at things of the context of which they were made. Games then were always for a high score. The games having an ending then was extremely rare. As for Superman, which did have an ending, introduced a game that had more than one screen, being based off of the code for Adventure. There are much worse licensed games out there. M*A*S*H* comes to mind.
No Way! I loved that superman game when I was a kid! This was only a couple short years after pong was the only video game, so I thought it was great. PS They forgot to add Indiana Jones.
Empire Strikes back? Are you kidding me? That was riveting. Wasnt it the first Starwars game? First one I played anyway. And Ghostbusters was great too. Trapping ghosts and driving to jobs. People cant judge these games by current standards, they'll never hold up. But back in the day Atari was king and I played everything I could.
How about spiderman? Reaching the top to fight green goblin! That Star Wars was good! How bout Vanguard!!! Spent endless hours playing that and Adventure too! Haunted House anyone? Circus Atari with those paddles were pretty cool too. List goes on and on. The box art on some of those games were priceless!
