or Atari Club Catalog.I lived in a small town outside Dublin in Ireland most people hadn't even heard of Atari.I already had
because I had an Atari Touch Me game a couple of years earlier.It was cool to be one of the lucky few to own one(Initially I
only knew one or other kid who had a VCS and he had the same games I had) but the downside was that meant no game swaps.So I
was stuck playing Space Invaders and Combat for a while.Luckily these were Two very good games that had a lot of playability.
In 1980 in Ireland new Atari 2600 games where pricey The Activision games where almost half the price.Anyway over the next year
or two I ended up getting Laser Blast, Tennis, Defender, Battlezone, Skin Diver, Checkers and Phoenix.After a while the
price dropped and more kids had Atari's so I got a loan of Pacman, Superman, ET, Missile Command, Asteroids, Moon Patrol, Vanguard,
Empire Strikes Back, Berzerk, Haunted House, Yars Revenge, Pole Position, Jungle Hunt, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Star Raiders,
Demon Attack, and Vanguard plus a couple of others that I can't remember.Then around 1984 I managed to pick up some boxed second
games cheap Polaris, Gangster Alley, China Syndrome, Cross Force and Eggomania the first ever game to make use of my original VCS
Paddles.By this stage a lot of kids were getting home computers, I got a Sinclair ZX Spectrum at the recommendation of my friend
Leo who already had one.I wish I had known better I would have got an Atari 800 or a Commodore 64 instead.I ended giving away my
Atari VCS around 1985.I wish I had kept it.It was well played though and I'm glad I had it.
