    bought an atari

    2600 model with one wood panel ... works first try every try ... paid 50 canadian for it, the downside being it only had five games. the guy at the flea market said he would bring in more games next week, so all good ... help me celebrate cuz i'm so happy with my purchase!

    because i remember owning one as a kid and my mom would have to yell at me to get me to stop! sure there's emulators but the original consoles are collectors items and great for taking out at parties where all my 30 yr old friends remember them fondly.

    May I ask what games you got with it?

    http://vsrecommendedgames.wikia.com/...600#Atari_2600

    try to get them
    But you can add OVER 9000!! for Yars revenge

    If you have four mates that are open minded and can source four paddles (they come in twos) Warlords is one of the greatest four player games EVER!
    Many hours where lost at retro Rewind this year drinking and playing it

    combat, defender, berserk, yars revenge and pole position. sadly no paddles, even less luck finding 3 people to play warlords lol ... i'll have more games soon but tracking down games and accessories will be hard. hopefully i can find a friend with a paypal account and buy online ...

    Its not that hard to find Atari 2600 stuff.
    People on the Retro Gamer forum tend to sell stuff for it a fare bit, but there mostly PAL games.
    If you can get games cheap for it buy them as there are a load of naff titles on there, but there still kinda fun.

    Sounds just like the one I had as a kid. Have fun playing & nevermind these kids... They have no idea how cool Atari's were back in the day.
