  1. I know. The good classics don't seem to be in short supply. And thank you.
  2. Hmmm.... Is that why those particular games are pretty common?
  3. This is my current collection of classic games. I only started collecting Atari games recently, but I might be off to a good start. My Atari 2600 jr. and accessories: Super Nintendo wireless controller These are great controllers. Atari 2600 games I don't know how I ended up with two copies of Combat, but I'm guessing it's not hard to end up with multiple copies of common games. The Tele-Games edition of Asteroids was an interesting find. For a game with millions of copies supposedly in a landfill, it is incredibly easy to find. If this "game" didn't come with my Atari, it would be in the trash can by now. Ah, Frogger. This version is one of my favorites. So far, Yar's Revenge was the only Atari 2600 game I bought new in its box as it is my favorite Atari game. The comic does an excellent job at explaining the story. That's my classic game collection for now, but this collection is likely to grow as time goes on.

    This is my Atari 2600 jr. and a few other goodies. To the left of the console is an Atari 2600 joystick, an Atari 2600 plug-n-play, an Intellivision plug-n-play, and a Genesis plug-n-play. To the right of the console is a Pac-man plug-n-play which has Pac-man, Super Pac-man, and Pac & Pal, and below it is the Atari 2600 paddle controller. Actually, it is the paddle controller for the Flashback 4, but it does work with the original unit,

    This is the wireless controller I had for my Super Nintendo with it's receiver. While I don't have the console anymore (it died. ), I decided to keep the controllers.

    These are games I have that are made by Atari and based on arcade titles. From left to right, top to bottom, we have Combat, Pole Position, Kangaroo, Combat again, Defender, Battlezone, Berzerk, Centipede, Missle Command, Asteroids (in it's tele-games form), Breakout, and Pac-man. My favorite in this collection is probably Berzerk.

    From left to right we have Star Raiders, Circus Atari, Basketball, Mouse Trap, and Super Football. All of these are fun. Unfortunately, I can't play Star Raiders since I don't have the keypad controller.

    The tennis game is pretty good and Air Raiders is...unique.

    E.T.

    I think this is probably the most infamous game in my collection, and I find it to be a lot of fun.

    These are my Activision games. From left to right we have Freeway, Pitfall, Stampede, Barnstorming, and Boxing. I find it interesting that the Boxing cartridge has a sticker on it that says RealSports Boxing when this is the Activision Boxing.

    These two are interesting games.

    This is a picture of all of my Imagic games. At the top is Demon Attack. Right below it is Atlantis and its sequel Cosmic Ark, and below them is Riddle of the Sphinx. All of them are great, but the last one seems a little ambitious for the 2600.

    Yuck! Perhaps the worst game in my collection. The only reason I have it is because it came with my Atari 2600 jr.

    Sky Skipper

    From the album: RetroIndieGamer's classic games collection

    This is an interesting game in my collection. It is a fun little game, but it doesn't control well with the Atari 2600 controller. However, it works fine with the Sega Genesis controller.

    Frogger

    From the album: RetroIndieGamer's classic games collection

    These two cartridges are the Parker Brothers version of Frogger for the Atari 2600 and the Intellivision. There's a funny story behind this pic, and that is that I ordered the Atari version, accidentally got the Intellivision version, the guy sent me the Atari version, and I got to keep both.

    Perhaps my favorite Atari 2600 game. I got it new in the box and...it didn't stay in the box when I got it. It has the game, the manual, the comic, and an Atari catalog from 1981.

  18. Yeah. They probably dumped a lot of games in the landfill, like the one they pulled from their lineup. Some E.T. carts are probably there, but it is still doubtful that a lot of E.T. carts are in a landfill when it is very easy to find. Besides, what would a game sitting in a landfill for 30 years be worth?
  19. That is interesting. I guess it means it doesn't take long for something to become a legend. Of course, Atari isn't helping matters by not keeping their stories straight.
  20. Interesting article. It'll be interesting to see what they will find, if anything, but are the people involved in this dig aware that E.T. is not exactly a hard to find game?
