I got this old Colecovision from Creig’s list which is pretty dirt, controlle is fine, everything works perfect as it should except the joystick which only works if I push it to the right SOMETIMES if I’m playing a game and push the controller to the left hard enough it might make my character move slightly to the left, the other directions don’t work at all Here’s what the inside looks like
Surely in your travels you've managed to completely alienate a person when they try to discuss a topic like classic gaming, or something similar. I have a few stories, one is pretty embarrassing. Went to a Radioshack and asked for an F-Type to RCA adapter. Received blank stares. So I just went and got it myself. Cashier had no idea what it was. Did they ever train these people? The term "paddles" for paddle controllers. To this day this still confuses people, even those who grew up with these consoles. when I clarify, they go "Oh, the pong controllers". Maybe Atari should have just called them that. I was in an unclaimed storage center with a buddy of mine that works there, who had just found a Xonox double-ender in a storage bin. We were talking about that when a woman in the store nearly had a come-apart moment telling us to not use such sexual language as "double-ender" in front of her children. Words have different meanings, lady... Now for one that I got confused on... I had a retro setup at a con in Alabama back in 2010 or so. I had a classic 586 computer (It was an IBM PC, I know how that is around here) along with some game consoles. A man in his 20s comes up to the computer and goes "Wow, I would love to bring my PS2 here tomorrow!". I told him that I had many games for the original platform but if it was a 386, that would be okay, I could throw Wolfenstein on it. He told me he'd bring his favorite game for it - Metal Gear Solid 2. Oh. that PS2. Get outta here, man!
