Sure thing. I use AllGameGuide for a lot of my collecting porpoises. Here's a link to 2600 titles sorted by release date.

Awesome site! Looking forward to it going back to 77. :-)
I'm in the middle of updating my 1982 and 1983 history pages, so please excuse the mess:
I'm also working on other years thanks to scans in the PD Library and places like Flickr.

Was just poking around looking for a "release date list", and this is the closest I've been able to find (http://www.allgame.c...s&sort=date_asc) .
Just wondering if anyone has found anything better since this topic was started. I'm not looking for exact dates, but I'd love to find a list of just Atari-branded cartridges, with approximate release dates (month & year, or even something like "spring '81").

I've also tried to find/compile my own list with release dates narrowed down to month. It's hard, and the catalogs don't help. When I've asked for info from the community, I've not gotten much useful information.
That said, I've puzzled out 1978 pretty well, and about half of 1979.

Bump. What source do folks use now? I'm most curious in figuring out what the last games released were, working backwards.

Random Terrain, above, has got a good list -- particularly the later dates. If you click the links above, you go to an earlier version. Try here: http://www.randomter...story-1980.html
I've been working on my list, which goes through mid-80. https://docs.google....IwOc/edit#gid=0
The verified dates have comments on them. The unverified dates are set to January of their release year. You can see the catalog references in the far right column so I've got the relative, if not the absolute, release dates.
Please comment here if you have any data that can help refine these dates!

I've basically got as close as accurate list as I've been able to manage, based in part on old periodicals like Computer Entertainer (which listed releases by month) and Electronic Games. For early stuff I use info assembled by Michael Current, who in turn based his information off old newspapers acquired through library databases.

A year or two ago I created a document using research from this site, Atarimania, and that really huge variation document that I unfortunately cannot remember who maintained it.
