I'm 32 now, so I played alot of Atari, but I remember clearly when the NES came out and pretty much stamped out most of the remaining life out of Atari.....while, I know they have been producing and publishing games since then, (I remember the Jaguar distinctly and that enormous controller!) they really have'nt done anything as groundbreaking as the original systems (although, I do remember really wanting a Lynx)......Atari will always hold a fondness in my memories as a 5 year old playing it with my dad.....

I think it would be cool if they were to get back into making consoles and suddenly put a system out that was capable enough to compete with the big three? Doubtful, but always possible.
