Moon Patrol - There's a classic that hasn't been played all tha often in the HSC!
Cosmic Commuter - Interesting idea. Worth a try.
Also, we haven't played Commando Raid in quite a while. That's a fun game, and great for competetive play.

Cosmic Arc Game 2 or 5
Combat You as one tank take out the helpless non moving tank.
Astroblast (no paddles allowed)

If we were to play Cosmic Commuter, it'd have to be game 2, even then I could see a lot of people rolling it or just getting sick of it and quitting. I love the game but once you get the hang of it it's awfully easy.
Moon Patrol, Enduro, Entombed, Jawbreaker, Fast Eddie, Crazy Climber and Bump n Jump haven't been played for a while.
For never been played: Music Machine, Bumper Bash, Cakewalk
Homebrews: Wall Jump Ninja, Crazy Balloon, A-VCS-Tec Challenge

ADDING SUGGESTIONS - Fast Food
If we play Fast Food, I will give a special idea for Bonus Game - play the 7800 version of Fast Food, named FAT AXL
The special reason: I received 2 cartridges for Atari 7800 together with an Edladdin Super 78 Joystick, which I won from the last High Score Official Competition (Summer Contests 2016). These cartridges are Scammer Brawler and Fat Axl.
Barnstorming (Game 3 for regular scores and Game 4 for bonus)
Cosmic Commuter (Game 2)
Laser Blaster (Game 4)
River Raid 2
Space Treat Deluxe (homebrew)
Chase the Chuck Wagon
Communist Mutants from Space
Pigs in Space
Roc N Rope

I suggest Crackpots

Here is my list of games I would like to see played:
Posted Sun Jan 1, 2017 5:28 PM
My bonus idea at the opening of Season 6:
Post a picture of your Atari VCS Console SERIAL NUMBER.
To be eligible to get bonus points, your console MUST be an original Atari-made console, which can be 2600/VCS (including 2600 Jr.) or 7800 ProSystem - NO 3rd-party systems (Sears, Dactar, Coleco Gemini etc.) or Expansion Module.
And two more suggestions:
Bowling (Combined Score = Game 1 score + Game 3 score + Game 5 score)

Hi all. I am new to these forums, and I came across this. It seems like it would be cool and definitely something I would like to get in on. A couple of questions though if you do not mind. How many weeks do you do this? And what if I do not own or have access to some of the weekly games? Could I still play during other weeks? Thanks!!
Oh, btw, I am not sure what games you have done in the past, but I think both Demon Attack and Phoenix have always been good ones for 'competition'play.

DEAR 2600 HSCLUBERS,
While Season 6 of the NEW 2600 HSC doesn't start, visit the "Hi-Score Today" thread.
In this thread, test your skills and post your personal High Scores from any games, any classic platforms (including Atari Systems) and any game variation (console or emulation) - just specify the game played, category and the respective settings used.

Don't remember seeing this come up for competition before, but I think Tax Avoiders would be a fun addition to the lineup this season. I'd like the excuse to push myself to a higher score on it.
Yeah, I'd like to try it out. Good suggestion

I don't remember ever playing Threshold in the HSC. That's a fun one for the shooter category.
I just started playing Amidar, a long-neglected game in my collection, so I'd like to suggest that as well.
Otherwise, my general suggestion is to simply pick games that haven't been played in the HSC before. I like surprises

I like the idea of Combat (seeing how many times you can pummel the non-moving tank. Along with that thread, may I suggest:
Air-Sea Battle: Shooting Gallery variation (the one with the duckies/bunnies.)
Or how about making a themed round...timed games. Combat, Air-Sea Battle, Indy 500, Night Driver
