    Console...

    Boy, does this bring back memories. When this was popular I had a friend that was hooked on the Atari.
    It might sound like a cheap date, but,, we would get a bottle of wine, a cheese tray, crackers, the Atari and have the best time. My fav was "Frogger": a frog had to jump over obstacles, well after drinking the wine that was not an easy task, but it was FUN. Not sure if this name is correct: "Street Racer" was another fav. It was a car on a track that had again obstacles that you had to avoid and the faster the better. I was pretty good at "Street Racer". "Space Invaders" was OK, not good at "PacMan". Then there was the original "Pong" which you could play with your eyes closed. There also might have been a "Golf". The entertainment the Atari provided was done during a much simpler, gentle time line than what we are currently living. It was a wonderful experience. I have seen it currently advertised for sale, so perhaps others would also like to relive playing on the "Original Gaming Console"

    Not from my time, but the Atari 2600 is a great system anyway. Adventure is be of my favorites. That little square that you have to movie around where you have to find a Holy Grail that looks like a devil's head, and fight dragons that look like ducks, with a sword that looks like an arrow pointing left. And there's that magic tunnel that you can carry around to help you pass through walls. And best of all, there's a secret message hidden in the map!

    It's great that developers are making plug and play systems that emulate the Atari 2600 games, complete with controllers modeled after the originals, so that people from this generation can enjoy these great games too.
