WHICH 2600 GAMES ARE THE MOST FUN?

Recommended Posts

I'm just looking for opinions here. Since there are tons of games I don't have, as I try to build up my Atari 2600 collection, I'd like to know which games I should get first.

 

So which games do you like the most? Which games are the most addicting to play? Which games do YOU think are just plain lots of fun?

 

Thanks!

Kaboom! is very addictive once you learn how to play at the top level. Try to get to 999,999. I've been practising on and off for 7 years and my high score so far is 416,427.

I have always enjoyed Space Invaders(who doesn't?). Being one of the first games I could beat my uncle playing it will always hold a special place in my deep dark past. :twisted:

 

Demon Attack also enjoys status with me as it is fun to play but was the first game I "beat". I have never been able to do it again but waaaay back when I made the aliens surrender(game goes black after level 80 or something)!

 

My all-time favorite Atari 2600 game though has to be Pressure Cooker. It's a lot of fun and a fast-paced game with great replay value! It's not a game you can just learn the "pattern" to. :)

It's easier to list the games that aren't any fun.

 

SEA HUNT!!!!!!!! This game was originally designed by an evil being from a distant galaxy intent on torturing the populace of this planet. Thankfully, the U.S. government caused the video game crash just in time to stop this plague from spreading any further. Or, maybe it just sucked really bad :D
