I had a dream one time where I played the 2600 all backwards. What I mean by that is it was the CARTRIDGE that had the switches and connectors and RF cable connecting it to the TV set; while the actual full-size 2600 console was the game. We'd swap consoles (and not carts) out to play different games. The cartridge sat on the floor and the 2600 would plug into it at a funky angle, sometimes partly embedding itself into carpet or something.
I also had a dream of a 2600 console made in 1976 with a bicentennial theme. With electric sparklers emanating from underneath, like those lights on lowriders.
And of course. I dreamed of a diamond suitcase with exotic alien circuitry (yet to be invented) that was capable of playing arcade games from 500 years ago all the way up to thousands of years from the future. It had a Coke soda can on the side that would spin up and form a black hole creating a time-warp of a sort. This computer thing box could send parts of itself into the future, and as it caught up with itself it had the most impossibly complex programs already executed and awaiting display on a thin glass monitor.
I suppose the closest thing today is mame on a laptop. But still pretty cool back then!
Another one was where I kept screeming Bzzztherrkktthceeeez! over and over again while these little green men scrolled off the screen and out of the monitor itself! They formed a moving and swaying carpet-like wave of ant things on the floor. I quickly found out that I could control this "carpet wave" of green men at breakneck speeds and started crowd surfing up and down the street. I got a pit-stop at some fat-lady's house and driving controller upgrade. This allowed even higher rates of speeds.
