Hey nice approach on this one lol. Honestly they DO get a lot of flack, yes much is warranted but I always thought eh, at least they tried something different. Really it was kind of the in thing of electronics of the time,  much like the original ATARI 400 keyboard, a plastic membrane with pressure sensitive contacts underneath, maybe not exactly the same concept but seems similar to me, besides looking cool was it a good idea? Maybe not but they are certainly a product of their time. I actually been wanting to do more on these type of controllers, I have the Genesis and I think NES or SNES version of this controller and even another similar type for Colecovision which I think is by another company but still just a flat directional disc like these. They are definitely NOT something to use where you need sudden sharp pinpoint up / down / left / right turns (like say PAC MAN) BUT I find after some practice on certain types of multidirectional games they CAN actually be pretty good, at the very least they certainly are a unique way of playing. If I ever get around to it I want to try all these types of controllers like I mentioned on a variety of games, different types and genres from platform to action to puzzle games and see how they really play out. Someday.

It sucks.  But it's a sign of the times.  I talk about it often on Facebook.  I call it "hidden inflation".  From the YouTube side, there's just no way for them to recoup costs to manage.  Everyone on the bottom is getting squeezed.

It'll be interesting to see if there's an "Atari" movie. There's been talk of that for years. Ten years ago it was announced that Leonardo DiCaprio was going to play Nolan Bushnell in a film. It made news all over the internet and wasn't really mentioned again.

With the internet and department stores like Target and Wal*Mart being a cheaper and more covenant option, an icon will fall. So sad.

I like those T-800s, those look detailed and nasty! I haven't seen Blade Runner 2049 yet but am looking forward to it. So glad to hear it expands the story perfectly. I don't understand why I didn't do well in the theater. I hope they make a third. Good video Atari Creep!

Thanks bud!!! Ya, Kenner did an amazing job with them despite what they did with the rest of the line.
