    Anybody still play Atari?

    Got the 2600.

    Golly, the graphics suck, but the gameplay is still there.
    What titles do/did you play?
    Berserk?Combat?Haunted House?

    Nothing better than spanking your 6 y/o 12-2 in a game of tank pong only to have him attack you and start swinging at you when its over.

    Wasn't there a Star Wars game also? I vaguely remember trying to take down a very blocky Imperial Walker by shooting into a narrow slot at the top...

    Yup. Havent found it yet for my 4$ max bid on ebay. It was fun tho. One could obtain the force for a few seconds and really let the troopers have it.

    Hey, no judgment being passed here, friend. Whatever you crazy kids get up to in the boudoir in the privy of your own home is fine with me!

    Star Wars for the Atari 2600 is considered one of the greatest Video games based off a movie ever and it was groundbreaking and ahead of its time. On the other hand Atari also had ET which was the worst video game ever crreated.
