THE ATARI 2600
|The legendary company whose name is synonymous with the word "videogame." Founded as an arcade- game produced by Pong inventor Nolan Bushnell in 1972, Atari came to prominence in 1977 with the company's most famous product, the TV game system Atari 2600. This system is the father of all videogame systems. How can anyone forget this system. This was the big one, everybody and their brother had a 2600. If you didn't have it, chances are a friend did. There were several different types of Atari 2600s available. Some were the standard plastic casing, others featured a simulated wood cabinet. Another version came out for a low, low price of under $50. If gamers want a huge library of games, this is where to go. |
O what a joy it was to play this system everday when I got home from school. These games bring back so many memories. If you are an avid collector of video games, this is the site for you.
