I became interested in Atari the day my folks got the family a 2600 for Christmas in the early 80's. I was very enthralled by it. Growing up, I always kept my eyes open at garage sales for neat looking 2600 game carts. Usually putting my hopes in the artwork and graphic design of the labels. I didn't have Internet, eBay or AtariAge, so I would get all my info by word of mouth, writing to Atari customer service or figuring the gameplay out myself. Those weren't easy times for my gaming passion, but they were good times.
I just couldn't seem to find enough 2600 games to quench my thirst. As I got a little older and friends around me started getting Nintendo's, Sega's and Turbo GFX systems, I was stuck with the good old 4-Switch seen in the photo above. We didn't have the money to spend on keeping up with the times and I think that's created somewhat of a video gaming complex with me, because I started accumulating more and more systems as the years went on.
So here I am. And very happy to be a part of the awesome AtariAge community. Cheers to all!
