I have conducted an interview of AA user and Intellivision Productions employee: Colormesticky. http://atariage.com/...-colormesticky/

 

Enjoy!

 

A snippet of the interview. The full interview is located here:   http://intellivision....com/interviews

 

Thanks for your time, let's go way back. What is the first video game you ever played?

 

I have no idea, but I have pretty distinct memories of my dad wiping the floor with me at Sea Battle, and of my brother and I yelling at things that were constantly eating us in Quest for the Rings for the Odyssey2. I'm pretty sure that even if I were actually GOOD at games I'd still suck hard at QftR.

 

Back then, was it a family experience playing games? Or more casual personal gaming?

 

It was very much a family affair. The Intellivision lived downstairs in the living room for years, and everybody played it. My parents got the O2 before I was born and had already burned out on it, so that was upstairs with a little TV for us kids. Eventually we got a secondhand NES, and all the consoles went upstairs. The O2 was the forgotten system and went into a closet, but we'd take it out on summer breaks.

 

Continued......
