Top 10 Worst Games on the 2600 (In my Opinion) in Atari 2600 Posted December 21, 2020 4 hours ago, insertclevernamehere said: I find these PAL only publishers and games a bit of a weird beast. As someone who was born in the PAL region and didn't move to NA until 2001, I have never heard of any of the games or publishers. Not one. At a guess I'd say a lot of these obscure publishers were affected heavily by region. And due to their dubious legality I'd say they were also limited to very few stores. Some of them may be akin to own-brand toys and things found in dollar/pound stores, a bit like the Zellers releases, and others were likely only advertised in magazines as mail-order only. Some of the bootleggy brands were actually fairly prolific, especially in Germany with Quelle and its design subsidiaries, you can't find a single game lot on ebay.de that doesn't have one or two Quelle games in it. The possible creator of most of the games I listed, Homevision, only seemed to have a presence in France and Italy, and a pretty small one too despite how many stores they have listed in their ads. (Fun fact, according to their mailing address in their advertisements they were a Belgian company based in Brussels.) The same holds true in North America for the more established publishers, I'm sure a few folks on the forum can confirm that they never saw at least one or two well established publishers until after the fact because the stores around them just didn't carry them. As far as I can tell you exposure to certain pockets of the library is based entirely on luck and where you live.
