View Full Version : Atari games!

Ha ha!!

I'm in the middle of playing my favorite Atari game!! It's Asteroids. I love Atari!! My neighbor down the street from me in one of my other houses had an Atari when I was a wee youngun' and I thought it was the coolest thing since sliced bread. Now we have "Playstation 2" and "Nintendo 64" but Atari was the kickas5 game system that pioneered the trail for all the sellout systems now!!

It was probably the way it was given to me. My parents promised me a puppy dog and they got me a Nintendo instead. I kinda' resented that! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif

I remember those from when I was a kid! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif

I must choose my N64 over my PC, for games anyway. The PC games are better, I think, but my Nintendo (at 64 MB) is four times as smart as my PC (at 16) when it comes to graphics.

Daytona USA, House of the Dead III, Crazy Taxi 2, Shenmue 2, NFL/NBA/NHL 2K2, Virtua Tennis 2.

Tell me that the DC is dead.

And yes, consoles are for weak, but like, my PC is playing the newer games(NFS:Pr0sche) at 640x480 with 16fps, so like, I run off to my DC/N64/SNES/Mega Drive for GOOD FUN.

That game is the biggest pain in the ass I've ever played. Fun, yes. But there's no save feature. Also, the one time I managed to call the helicopter, it never showed up.

I had some of these games for years. I started buying the LucasArts Archives, then got games from presents(your right there...) from family and relitives,I worked from them, I also got some games like Chex Quest out of boxes of Chex Cerials.And still, I spent over $200 on DVDs since last August and to top that off, I STILL have a real life!

ATARI was slightly before my time. At least around here...like only five people I know had an atari...but 95% had a Nintendo. I only know TWO people that had a sega master system.
I do remember the Atari 2600 commercial for some reason though.

Another of my favorite games was Space Quest. My favorite one was Space Quest V!! Roger Wilco cracks me up!! I like the part where to get out of the space bar you have to open up a package of space monkeys, (very similar to sea monkeys) and it blows up the bar. While you are making your escape in your trash scow, you have to use the windshield wipers to wipe the dead space monkeys off the glass. It's funny!

You've never heard of sea monkeys?? They're like a little package you can buy at the store and you dump the package into a fishbowl filled with water and they come alive and start swimming around. You can supposedly teach them to do tricks, although, I don't believe it!! They are actually little harmless bacteria or something! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/confused.gif Well, I don't know.
