The Atari 2600 was an amazing accomplishment for the gaming world. No longer did kids have to bug their parents to play simple minded board games to stay amused. Now users were able to experience the action of video games in the palm of their hands.
So many childhood memories with these games..
Now they're just a greedy, cash-grabbing organization. They have no integrity whatsoever. Back in the day, they used to put pride into their developers making quality console games.
Dragonfire was my favorite.
combat, the reason why many sibling rivalries got started. bubble for all the old gamers.
I loved Pitfall. And another game I have a hazy rememberence of where you had to chase a robber and jump over shopping trollies.
Someone remake these in LBP2!
Seaquest and Jungle Hunt were my two favs.
You gotta give props to Pitfall. It invented the side scroller The Empire Strikes back was the first Video Game movie tie-in ever.
wow this is a trip down memory lane. back to the days when activision was the first third party dev for the atari system. how things have changed.
Whers Bersrk? The game which almost etainly led to the developement of Robotro which inrn is the father o all twin tick shooters? Wheres Dodge Em? A race car game that may have came out even before Pacman I cant find an exact date, and had superior gameplay in my opinion. In was fast and addictive. And Kaboom. Well what needs to be said about Kaboom? I will forgive them for ommitting Strawberry Shortcake.
Ah.. Bersrk was awesome.... Actually have Robotron on Mame and works brilliantly with the DS3.. Dodge em, boy did I spend alot of money on that... Spent all day on it at the easter show years ago.. Also the port of missile command to the 2600.. No track ball, but fun all the same.
