I dunno .. I had great memories with friends playing Atari 2600 games, even to this day, just for fun, just for laughs. So - TO EACH THEIR OWN!
My friends all grew up in the Tiger Electronics era. Nobody speaks about those games anymore .. it's like it's a dirty topic.
Growing up I had Nintendo, one of my friends had Tiger Electronics. On a sleepover at his place, all we did was play those shitty handhelds. Whack-a-Mole is fun for a few minutes. Imagine playing it for hours.
The cover art is way cooler than the actual game. Nail 'em to a wall for decoration. Everyone will be happy while they play some more '2600.
