I must add the homebrews Oystron, Seawolf, Qb, Gun Fight, Reindeer Rescue, Flap Ping, Hunchy II, and the hack/hombrew Wolfenstein VCS-the next mission. All of them are awesome. I'm sure I'm forgetting some, there are so many wonderful homebrew games out there.

I'd say Berzerk, Space Invaders, Astroids, Video Olympics (the Atari should have came with this game), Pitfall, Missile Command, Adventure, Haunted House, Warloards, Yars Revenge, and if by some freak of nature you actualy do not have it...Combat. These are the games that I think of when I hear the word "Atari".

Oh don't forget Halo 2600.

Top 10.

Adventure, Space Invaders, Asteroids, Pitfall, Pac-Man, River Raid, Atlantis, Seaquest, Kaboom, Megamania

*Atari Pac-Man is on this list because its such an important part of the 2600 experience. Those graphics, that chomping sound. They're iconic.

When I mentioned "that chomping sound" I'm sure some of you heard that noise in your head. That's Pac-Man related brain damage.

Space Invaders, Combat, and Missile Command.

I'm sure they've all been mentioned but they're all must own titles. Dirt Cheap too.
