  1. This was in comic books during the early 80's. I just posted this ad on my Instagram.
  2. I really like this game. I used to play it all the time. I never really thought of any of the things everyone has mentioned, but looking back on it, yeah, I agree with everyone but I think it is fun and still a very good Atari game and I still enjoy playing it.
  3. So, how many kids actually colored in a coloring book while 2 other kids play video games right next to him?
  4. My sister(who just turned 28 this year), actually grew up playing Atari, because my brother and I hogged the nintendo systems, so, she has a appreciation for the 2600. She even found one at a thrift store and has put together a modest collection of games. She's not seriously collecting like I am, but she has asked me for advice on games. So, yeah, there are members of the younger generation who enjoy the 2600. I'm sure a lot of kids today look down on the 2600, but like Zwackery said, let them play some good games and they will come around.
  5. I picked up a Intv 1 at the Midwest Gaming Classic last year and the only game I was able to get working was Beauty and the Beast. Everything else wouldn't play. I ended up getting a model 3 off of ebay for $40 with 2 games and that one works great.
  6. I have been lucky in finding Atari games at thrift stores. Not every time I go, but most often. For alittle while, I had a nice streak of finding CIB Intellivision games.
  7. I got this game(Outer Space) and Submarine Commander new at Sears. I played it a lot. Wasn't one of my favorites, but it was fun. I never played any of the other game variations though. I may have to check them out.
  8. You pretty much nailed the 2600 games. As far as the more modern games, there's also Halo(and its sequels), Goldeneye, the N64 WCW wrestling games, and, of course, all the Mario Kart games.
  9. I really don't evolve as time goes on, I de-evolve. When i start collecting something, I jump all the way in the deep end. Then as time goes on, I start looking at my collection and start to slow down. Case in point, Atari carts. When i started to seriously collect like 3 years ago, I was grabbing everything, label variations,system variations,etc. Now, I'm putting the variations on the back burner and concentarting on just getting carts i don't have. I've done this with everything I collect over the years, toys, monster stuff, comics, etc. I should know better now, but I always get too excited and overdo it.
  10. The 2600 was my second console ever(Pong was the first). I grew up playing Atari and evjoyed it emensely. Yeah, I play modern games(Red Dead 2 is possibly the greatest game I ever played and the first game I was dissapointed that I beat it because I wanted to keep playing), but there is just something about the 2600. I can always go back to it now and have a great time playing it. Maybe it's because I like old things, like comics. Yeah, I buy and read new comics and enjoy them, but, again, there's just something about reading a comic from 35 years ago(when I started collecting comics). Same with my action figure collecting. I would rather have vintage GIJoe and Star Wars figures then the new stuff. I guess it just brings me back to a simplier time in my life when I was a kid and didn't have a job, bills, etc. The nostalgia factor I would call it.
  11. Would Pitfall fall into the catagory?

    M.A.S.H.?

    I bought it back in the day brand new. It came with a olive green t-shirt with the mash logo on the front and 20th century fox games logog on the back. I jused to wear it all the time. I wish I knew what happened to it.
  13. I would love to know this also. Not just A/V mods, but 2600 mods in general.
