Atari Memories

Recommended Posts

 

 

Actually, StarMaster is playable on a B&W TV. I played it for over a year before I got that color TV.

 

Clearly you never read the instructions :P

At my friends place cranking asteroids up to the hardest level and seeing how long we could last. Then hassling his little brother who would always want a game on his own but would always play baby mode.

 

Good times :thumbsup:

Never had a 2600 as a child, I was much too young. But, my father had one and my sister and I used to beg him daily to play Ghostbusters and when he would give in to our constant pesterings, he would only play for maybe 5 minutes until he would claim that the joysticks were broken, but I just think he didn't know what he was doing.

 

I also remember him selling all his Atari stuff in the early 90s for $2. It was a very sad day.

Hopefully he didn't sell off a boxed Air Raid with that lot!

 

Did you make the Blue Slime in the picture?

Now that I'm collecting, we do joke a lot how unfortunate it would be if he sold off something rare.

 

And no, the slime was a gift from a friend. (And I believe it's an official plush)
