Where's your 2600?

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, all my video game stuff was forced to the bowels of the basement. My brother and I share a room, and he started to complain about my "ancient relics" taking up too much space.

Every video game item i own is in my basement in a 10 by 12 room, along with a entertainment center, a couch, a computer table, and tons of shelves, actually this is where i live, i only see the rest of the house when i want to eat or go to the bathroom, or dust the crap upstairs

My atari 2600 is sitting on top of my printer right behind my head in my room. There's an intellivision sitting next to it on the TV itself. Games for both are scattered throughout my closet, room, and basement. I need to organize this collection, its getting huge.

My Atari is on my desk in my room right next to my TV. It is hooked up. I haven't been playing it lately, but I do play it often. My games are in a few boxes on my floor.

My main 2600 is a six-switch Sears Telegames unit, and it lives on top of my Playstation 2, on top of a TV set. Ironically enough, the 2600 seems to get more use. I even brought both systems to a party once and we didn't use the Playstation...

My atari is hooked up to my bedroom TV and actually sits on the back of the couch since I'm running out of flat spaces to put things on.

 

Well placed Stan

I keep at least one hooked up to my TV and one under my pillow!

 

as Always,

Markimus of K.

PS: I got a lot more sleep when I put the jr. under the pillow instead of the Vader!

My original Sears model and subsequent 4-switcher along with all my carts are in a box 7000 miles away at home, along with my original 5200 and it's 2 extra counterparts.

 

However, here where I stay now, I've managed to scrounge up 2 additional 2600's for 7 bucks each this past year at Goodwill and a couple of second-hand carts as well (about 90 or so). One of them has been cleaned and is in front of my cable-less tv right now.

Hi there!

 

My girlfriend and I have an "Office-Room", where both our normal PCs are located. There we have an additional small color TV reserved for the 2600 only. It's always hooked and always ready.

 

Greetings,

Manuel

My 2600 is in the Atari organizer in the closet. I'd love to have it out, but it takes up too much room. I keep my 84 7800 out to play my 2600/7800 games.

Mine is sitting on top on my DVD player on my entertainment center in my room. It is hooked up to a 25 inch color TV.

Here's some advice... Bring the stuff back to your room and put your brother IN THE BASEMENT! Anyway, all my stuff is in a closet. I have a 27" B&W TV in there and I hook up my games whenever....

My Sears Heavy Sixer sits in a Closet on a shelf...

 

It is actually more protected there than out in the open. I do the same thing Tempest does...I use my modded 84 7800 for playing all my 2600 stuff on.

My Atari 2600 is sitting in a "Space Case" (vintage '80s, don't know who the manufacturer is, but it's an Atari storage unit) in my entertainment center, underneath the Sega Dreamcast and the VCR, next to my television. All hooked up and ready to be played!

Where is my 2600? Believe it or not, some how my 2600 crawled into my 7800 case and managed to squeeze in next to the 7800 some how. It refuses to tell me how it managed it, but says it likes the married life better. They live together on top of my VCR, with the 5200 being the upstairs neighbor on the shelf above. My c-380 Video Pinball, Jaguar/cd, 3DO, Dreamcast, PSX and XE all currently share the same monitor with the them. It's one happy neighborhood. The neighborhood is in the town of 'My bedroom' as I'm still single so they haven't been forced to move to the town of 'My basement' yet...but they will all move to the town of 'My livingroom' once I get an apartment complex in there big enough for them all (entertainment center).

My 2600 I played as a kid is under the VIDTARI in the center of the shelves. My Vader is hooked up to the 51 inch in the living room, and there is one hooked up in my classroom. I just sold a heavy sixer, so its in my closet waiting for payment, and just listed a boxed one on ebay. I also have my promo one boxed behind the top boxes (added since the photo). To the right of the shelves are the loose carts in a storage compartment.

Well just like some of the others have said, most of my collection is in my basement but I do keep my six swith wood in my bedroom in its Atari carring case so I can break it out and play the new games that I buy when I feel like it.
