About this deal

I think most gen-X’ers (like me) think we’re the original gamer generation, but there were gaming boomers, too. The 2600 I played on was my uncle’s, and my stepfather at the time bought the Colecovision we had at home. And he didn’t really buy it for us - I think he wanted that nearly arcade-perfect Donkey Kong to play at home. Fortunately, his interest waned and we kids hogged it all the time. 😁

Below is a full listing of all the 130 included ATARI 2600 games. Titles below include: Atari, Activision, Imagic, Mattel, M Network and many more. If the ones you’re looking for aren’t below, you can easily add your own!While I'm at it, here is the entry so you don't have to copy it, just use this text and place in /rom/all-games.ini with appropriate space around it like the other entries: Any suggestions? Not necessarily after all the 3rd party consoles etc as could use a RPi4 for that - but something with the 2600 library etc with 3Dbox art, descriptions with all-games.ini etc. (7800 maybe a bonus).

Lots of people will say that Atari 50 is missing gems, a lot of those tiltles are tied up with licensing and such ( uhem! Microsoft/Activision/Imagic), NOTHING you can do about that. Fair score but I give it 100 👍🤩 kids these days may not “get” the dawn of gaming 😂 for those that do. I take my hat off to you! As a 47 year old kid, I think it's the game of the year! Quadratank – The first new entry in the classic Tank series since 1978 combines features from the original games with four-player fun in team or free-for-all modes. Once the game has opened, use the Game Select switch if you want to change the game option (The 2600 often had several versions of the game for 1, 2 or more players, varied options, etc.). I have a simple question. As this little beauty is able to read Space Invaders Part II (Taito), there is any way to get other arcade game on it ? The timeline/documentary stuff could easily be on a blu ray disk by itself and I’d be interested. The videos are cool and informative.On my first try, I used a 32GB USB 3 flash drive and I couldn't get that to work at all. I switched to an old 2 GB Cruzer and it "works". But sometimes I have to insert and re-insert it to the splitter and turn the unit off and on a couple of times before it loads it. Atari, in short, almost became my first company I owned a videogame console from-- A simple twist of fate steered me to Nintendo forever. Though I don't regret it, I still dabbled with Atari and continued to have a loose fascination with them. This "celebration" for me is personal and absolutely essential though I didn't "live" it first hand. I will be awaiting a sale as I am maxed out on what I'm playing at present, but I will have it.

This is great cause every year I never know what to get him for christmas and he tells me not to waste my money as he doesn’t need anything. Well this year he’s getting a switch. Atari 50 may well be the best game collection ever made, and should be the base template for future developers to follow.” I totally agree - ESB was a great shooter at the time. I can still see those blinking rectangles (weak spots) on the walkers, begging to be shot. That game and Pitfall 2 were like the final 2600 games I remember playing seriously, along with all our Colecovision titles, before the NES hit the scene and completely took over. Teksetter 100% agree on the box art! The book, Art of Atari by Tim Lapetino, showcases and explores this. I would highly recommend it and its poster book companion.

There was a time when Atari was king, and the talk of the neighborhood. My sis and I played my Uncle’s VCS most days after elementary school. Just turn the TV dial to channel 3, plop ourselves on the rug, and go.

Plug the OTG cable microUSB connector into the console (male end of the OTG cable into the console).

what do i need to do to get rom_iv (intellivision) to work from the roms menu instead of the lfb folder? Experiencing history in Atari 50 is like nothing else I’ve ever seen in any collection before, let alone a documentary, book, or a classroom. It’s all of those things in one, and a lot more fun!” A]n achievement... so detailed and sprawling that it feels like a history lesson told in a way that’s completely native to video games... I now want this for every retro collection.” I enjoy the history aspect of this kind of thing, and this review praising this title in that regard specifically raises my interest in the game significantly. Too few retro collections put much effort into that realm.
