    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/wiki/Atari_2600#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
    If I was in the mood id ban you for that.

    Atari 2600>Wii

    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.

    They can be good and also bad.
    Good if you get the right idiot (a Dreamcast for a quid RLY!!!!)
    Bad if you get the wrong one (£80 for a Saturn with three games RLY!!!)

    first of all in east canada minimum wage is 10 bucks and a 2 litre milk is 4 dollars ... with that in mind ... super breakout with paddles was 10 and individual games were 1 to 3 dollars, the 1 dollar ones being sucky ones like word zapper. have 18 games so far but can't find 'em at the flea market each week. also have a genesis, nes, and gameboy so i'm trying to build a respectable collection for all of them. thanks for showing interest in my self indulgence lol...

    Heck yeah, had it and it kicked some ass.. game systems are about playability / game play, not graphics. Play that system Chuck Norris style, have some fun, when your tired of it store it nicely and you'll get your $ back and then some.. cheers!!

    i'm anal about storing it, it barely sees any dust. i do have berserk btw, took a while to relearn from 25 years ago.

    since enough are still interested, here's my full list so far:

    berserk, plaque attack
    space invaders, defender
    baseball, pole position
    adventure, asteroids
    armor ambush, astroblast
    phoenix, pitfall II
    super breakout, warlords
    swordquest: earthworld
    adventures of tron
    pressure cooker, centipede
    joust, river raid, sky jinks
    missile command, yars' revenge
    word zapper, space attack
    combat, keystone kapers

    i have a friend who otherwise stinks at video games he but has most of my house records for atari. 209199 pts for yars' revenge is pretty damn good, it took nearly an hour, but fun to watch.
