awesome weekend and my 5200 and collecting thoughts

I just spent the weekend fixing my 5200. I fixed the color on my 5200, re-calibrated the controllers and replaced the flex boards. lot a work but well worth it. My 5200 works better now than ever. I think it needs some more tweeking but now it works. Over all great system. I also found pacman defender super break out and Kangaroo MIB for $20. I now have 10 5200 games. I also repaired my 2600 joystick and added a few more games. I now have 105 2600 games. nowhere near a complete set but will ne
 

5200 baby !

got a great deal today. Finally replaced my 5200. Got one in Box 2 controllers. was sold as broken I took it home and cleaned it good removed some oxidation from mother board and it works great.

Combat

The mother of all video games for an Atari 2600 owner and the first pack in game. My Atari game it came with my promotional release only Atari 2600 It had the box even.

Thoughts on 5200(or how to kill a system)

Though I currently do not own a 5200 ( Hey I will take donations LOL). I have played the system. It was a great system graphically superior to the 2600 and even on par with the 7800. So why did this system epically Fail?? There have been tons or reasons and it has in some ways been talked to death. But I will give you my first-hand thoughts and reasoning. 1. The controller was ahead of its time and poorly designed. The first Major mistake was using a cheap flex board for the controller. Als

First Blog

First Blog Post: This blog will be about my thoughts on old 80s games and Toys. My first video game system was really a Coleco Telstar system then the Atari 2600. I was extremely lucky and got a Promotional use Atari 2600. I still have the system but have misplaced it I hope to find it as it was a heavy 6er Sunnydale. I currently Own another 2600 early addition 6er. Colecovision and a Intellivision. I have over 100 2600 games with 60+ boxed. My Intellivision set is 50 boxed games Colecov
