    No 2600 for us. We had the Sears Video Arcade.

    Yes! I remember writing down the "counts" on my Realistic (TM) cassette label for various programs so they could be reloaded. :)
    Other games could be stuck in the side similar to an Atari.

    My Dad made a good choice since it helped me learn about computers in the early 1980s but it wasn't as fun at the time. Just found this cool picture - we had everything on the right side but I don't recall those games.

    Did anyone else get the river raid iron on patch for a high score. Mine was ironed on to my kick ass toboggan.

    Maybe Stargate, but definitely not Defender. I had that for the 2600

    I saw Atari as a Video Game company, not really a 'computer' :dontknow: before my time / 286 with a math co-processor for the win!

    ... Was expecting this to be about the new "Ataribox" Pretty neat...

    Sadly, a bit too late for me as I had to say: :tflip: to Nintendo and got a RasberryPi Emulation station for NES/SNES/N64 + has Atari games fully covered... they snoozed they loozed :dadance:

    How many times did you jump when plugging in the power supply of the 5200? That was like a cinder block with a cord coming out of it.

    Yes. It played games from the 2600 also.
