Back again after a long hiatus

Recommended Posts

Hi, folks. It's been awhile since I've been on these forums. Just wanted to say "hello" to everyone and to those that remember me from being here earlier. I still have my Atari 2600, a bunch of loose games (all in Atari 2600 binders from the day), and some boxed games such as Ms. Pacman, Berzerk, Defender, Asteroids, etc. As much as I've been playing the heck out of my stepson's Xbox 360 (Fallout 3), I'm hankering back to the old-school style of gaming. Now...I just need a place to set it up in my den, which is rapidly running out of room.

 

I never parted with my Atari 2600, but put it away (lovingly, I might add) for another day. Looks like that day is here. I remember some previous posting about how you might put your Atari up for storage, but you always seem to come back to it. That couldn't have been better said! I have a light-sixer (Woody) and I have kept it wrapped and stored. I know it'll work again without even having to test it...these great consoles stand the test of time.

 

Anyway...I'm back, folks. Time to start some Atari gaming goodness once again and relive a very memorable childhood with my old video game console.

 

-Steve

^lol, nice one. I got back into the fold a little while ago too. Although I grew up with the Colecovision and NES, the Atari showed me that graphics/story isn't everything. Nothing beats 4 player Warlords, a game of Combat with a friend or just competing against your Hi-Scores. Welcome Back.

Hey, thanks for the welcomes. And yes, I should get right back into the Atari, however....stupid life keeps getting in the way! :lol: I seem to be unable to find one of the most important things to get the console up and running: The power adapter. :-o I'm sure it's around somewhere...sigh.

 

I have missed the console. And since I took such good care of it when I packed it away, it looks brand spankin' new. The fake woodgrain just shines in the light. :lust:

Actually, I found it buried in my drawer. :roll: Knew it was somewhere close by. Now I just gotta find some time this weekend to play it!
