Yeah, bored. Wanted to do some videos. One of which is "Games Worse Than E.T." I think I made myself sick playing those crappy 2600 games. Check them out if you're bored too. :D

Part 3...

 

 

I missed quite a few games in this original recording, so I'll likely do a supplement. These are fun to make, even if I do get sick doing it!

I haven't played ET much. When it came out I had already switched from the VCS to the Intellivision. And I didn't even see the movie until very recently. But I've never been one of the ET haters . As you've pointed out, there are far worse 2600 games.

Thanks for the videos.

Yep... I think my next video will be to cover a trio of games Bob DeCrescenzo gave me at Free Play Florida... One of which I don't think has been released yet. It's called, "BBCQ" or something. :D

There are several games that are really poor.  ET is a game I never hated either.  In fact, I always enjoyed playing it despite the difficulty with the pits.

The last one...

 

And how do you feel about Pac-Man? Is it really all that bad of a game?

Astro Blaster for 7800 review:

 

 

I originally thought this was kind of a dull game, but I've come to appreciate it!

My latest video, I pose the question: Should Atari have gone through with marketing the Nintendo Famicom in America?

Man, I loved this one back in the day! Star Trek: Strategic Operations Simulator!

 

 

Hard to stop playing once you get started! I actually prefer this version to the ColecoVision one.

Well, I haven't posted much lately... been more working on my "Adventure" channel. But I did visit a local video game store in town called The Arcade 80's.

 

 

I'm sure the experts would have a thing or two to say about it!

Hey guy(s?), planning on getting back into the swing of things with The Atari Times channel soon! I did a video on my Adventure channel showing the meager progress of my new game room (and future set of The Atari Times!)

 

Come check it out! It's going to be so nice when it's done!

I'm late on this, but the original idea to show games worst than E.T. is brilliant. E.T. was never, nor will it ever be, the worst Atari 2600 game.

Thank you! And agreed! (Obviously!)

Hey guys, relaunching my gaming channel into something a bit more broad based. Here's my first review under the new name, Super C for NES!
