  1. no wonder you can't find crazy climber or quadrun anywhere- you've got 'em all
  2. big boy- i kind of talked about this last year. one of my favorite atari memories growing up. me, my 2 brothers, and a cousin back in '80 or so had our own atari olympics. played every game. the winner of each event receiving 4 points, 2nd place 3 pts., and so on. nothing serious of course but a great way to test your overall skills for each game.
  3. the past year i've recently figured that a quadrun in good condition would go for about $1000. alot of money? a guy here that i work with spent about $250 on drinks last weekend at a bar. and he goes out almost every weekend! i'd rather spend $1000 on something that will give me enjoyment the rest of my life than something that i'll get rid of my next trip to the bathroom!
  4. reading and talking about atari- especially in the early days brings back such vivid memories. was around 13-14 yrs. old. we 1st got the 2600 around 1979/1980. my cousin got one first, which led us to get one probably a few months later (can't remember if it was for christmas or not). most of the memories were of playing it in the summer at a vacation house in the poconos for hours on end- that was easy to do then since there were like only 5 tv stations and cable barely existed (incredible). bought and played only atari games- surround, air sea battle, dodge'em, human cannonball, bowling, breakout....... ahhhh the good old days! didn't get an activision game until a couple years later (it started with skiing and ice hockey).
  5. just want to let everybody know. i e-mailed the seller to see if it had ever been worn, and if there was any odor. and she responded! yes, IT IS NEW, and has never been worn! therefore i guess there's no smell. happy bidding!

  7. super breakout is better because of the variations in game play- it's got a version with 2 balls at once, the double paddle and another (i'm not sure if it's the same game) with 2 separate breakout walls. and there's one where the wall creeps down every few seconds- like space invaders.

  9. the map is insane. it's a work of art, a masterpiece. there must be an award of some kind for this effort.

  11. TRUE- THERE'S NO PROBLEM GETTING AN ATARI (2600 OR 7800) GAME INTO THE 7800 SYSTEM. BUT MOST OTHER GAMES- ACTIVISION, IMAGIC, PARKER BROS. DON'T FIT SNUGGLY IN AND SOMETIMES CAN'T BE PLAYED. NO PROBLEM ON THE 2600 SYSTEM THOUGH.
  12. yep-i think it all peaked with yar's revenge. not only was there the manual, but the pamphlet with the story behind the game. amazing, that's what made the games more than a game. it was an experience.
  13. me too. it was pure luck that i passed it on the tv when i did. even though i didn't see anything i know it'll be on again, either later this week or so, or on another pbs station at a later date (i get 3 in my area). it's probably the only time i regret not watching the show too- old gaudy junk just doesn't do it for me.
  14. so what did he say? like i just posted, i missed it.
