Good season to all! My first, thank you for having me everybody, and thank YOU for the hard work Voccelli (for one brief second I was ahead of you lol)

 

Have really enjoyed myself, relieved stress from hectic work and life

 

Favorite: Dig Dug and Super Breakout G7

 

Surprises: Roc n Rope BIG time, and I'm shocked to say it, but Infiltrate, something addictive in there

 

The Dreggs: Bank Heist is MIND NUMBING boring and plain, Ghost Manor is truly HORRIFIC, scared me but not in THAT way

 

Edit: This Season Was HardWork™ :grin:

Favorites:

 

Cosmic Ark - one of my favorites to play growing up and still like it now
Toyshop Trouble - this could count as a surprise, too, but it gave me a nice brain burn trying to remember all the color combinations on the fly
Surprising:
Tac-Scan - I liked this one a lot and need to figure out my paddle controller situation to play it some more!
Track'n'Field - I liked the arcade version and was pleasantly surprised at this port!
Trbl:
Ghost Manor - no thanks
Bank Heist - I didn't think the game itself was horrible, but the police siren got on my nerves very quickly!

Gah! In spite of getting utterly distracted and completely spacing out the last 1/3 of the season I somehow still managed to make it into the bronze bracket finals. :o I'll come back and play in the final bracket tournament though!

Congratulations OldManG, totally dominated the season. I'm pretty happy with my 2nd place, my best ever result :)

 

Favourites:

 

Track 'n' Field: Never really gave this game a go, pleasantly surprised how good it plays.

Dig Dug: One of my favourites as a kid, still enjoy it today

 

Surprising:

 

Private Eye: Never played it until the competition here, great game.

Gingerbread Man: Homebrew i've never played, addictive.

 

Worst:

 

Kangaroo: Never liked the arcade version, the 2600 port is worse.

Infiltrate: A classic example of shovelware on the 2600.

Favourites:

Breakout - because paddles.

Demon Attack - one of those "get into the flow" games.

 

Surprises:

Gingerbread Man - more than meets the eye.

Private Eye - never played it before, pretty "sophisticated"

 

Worst:

Track n Field - can't stand to do this to my poor historical joysticks

Decathlon - see above.

 

It was a great season. Tough competition - for a mediocre player like me it gets harder every year to stay in touch with the top 24. And that'S exactly how it should be. Thanks, Mr. V for making this possible.

I really think it's time to have more teams in the bracket challenge and have a play in week 9 vs 12 and 10 vs 11 for each bracket or have an honorable mention bracket 25-32

 

I hated the paddle games and the games like track n field and decathlon. Favorite was Cosmic Ark

Details... next year!

Weirdly my favorites were both played during weeks I missed, but they both easily make my top 10 all time favorite Atari 2600 games list. As far as the worst games go, I just hate games where in order to get the highest score you have to sit there and grind doing the same thing over and over for 3 or 4 hours. I know that back in the day being able to play an arcade style game for hours on end was considered getting good value for your money, I just don't have the patience for it. :lol:
