Talking Atari 2600 games

Most us us had or played one of these back in the 80's. Did you own any patricularly shit games for it?

I remember this drivel, couldn't make heads nor tails of it.


f***ing state of it. Not that I knew at the time. Spent hours playing it

The classic Moon Patrol

Inherited my cousins Atari, one of the older versions with the wooden side panels, played this to death. The tune still pops into my head on odd occasions.

This was my first experience of controller across the room rage


Decent looking game for that system to be fair.

River Raid

I stole my friend's copy when we were kids. Always had to hide it when he came round to my house.

VCS Boxing was another abortion of a game.

Smurf - you had to jump on stepping stones, hop fences and dodge dangly spiders (you had to do it for f***ing hours at a time obviously ;-})

Riddle of the Sphinx - scroll up the screen for f***ing hours picking up stuff, some of which was good.

Them silver boxed f***ers that all looked ace but were actually utter shite - Empire Strikes Back was especially bad.

I bought an Atari about 10 years ago off eBay, convniced myself it it would be brilliant. Paid about 50 for original wooden console, paddles, controllers and about 30 games.

SHITE.

Been in a box in the attic ever since.

Don't go there, just play your PC/XBox/PS4.

Edit: drunk and can't spell convinced.

Centipede ffs. My poor mam and dad had to tolerate this all day Christmas day on the TV when I got my Atari. I think it was packed in with the console. f***ing drivel.

Deffo cutting edge at the time
