Are you having an Atari Christmas?

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to know if you ladies and gentleman out there are having an "Atari" Christmas. As in getting Atari-related gifts, giving Atari-related gifts, decorating with some Atari themes for Christmas, playing holiday Atari games, or whatever makes the holiday more "Atari" for you. Post your stories here, or what you're up to with Christmas fast approaching and Atari at your fingertips. :) Me? I'm just making sure to lovingly play my light sixer every day for an hour or so with a variety of games. My new tradition is playing Asteroids and Space Invaders on Christmas morning, as those were two games I got from my parents one particularly "Atari" Christmas (still have the original Atari my Dad got me all those years ago and it works like brand new).

 

Post pictures if you got them, too!

I have a morning (and night before) "schedule" of Atari gaming layed out. It won't be a long session, but just enough to enjoy the memories and good times.

 

400/800 - Star Raiders & Defender

VCS - Asteroids, Missile Command, Combat, Slot Racers, Air-Sea Battle, Canyon Bomber, Video Pinball, Video Chess.

 

These are games I felt, at the time, were magic. Especially Video Chess. Video Chess was cool because me and my buddies would gang up against the VCS. Once I got good enough I could (and still do) whip the computer's ass on any level.

Just ordered Pac-man 4k and Berzerk voice enhanced! Atari christmas will be late, but worth it. You're gonna love a Yurkie system. I just won Video Chess CIB on eBay for less than $10 too. :-D

I can't decide if I should open up a sealed Flashback 4. Of course I assume that playing Polaris will lead to too much thinking and sex. :rolling:

Would it be sacrelige if I threw in some Apple II gaming and general computing?

 

Naw. Gaming is gaming, especially retro gaming! It's Christmas after all. And the Apple II has some great gaming on it.
