  2. 🤔 If you could change ONE thing about 2600 Pac-Man what would it be?

      I agree with Rick. There have been a few color hacks that make it look so much better.

      And that's what makes it so frustrating.  Simple changes would have redeemed it.

      Literally everything.

  3. 🤔 THOUGHT: The Atari XEGS was everything the Atari 5200 should've been: Atari 8-Bit Computer technology bundled in a console w/ lots of memory, detachable keyboard, & fully compatible w/ Atari computer games & joysticks!

      👉 ALSO: I feel like if there had been a warehouse full of unsold 5200 games left over when Jack Tramiel got the company, the XEGS would've featured 5200 compatibility.

      That would have been cool I think, always liked the wacky look of the XEGS, never did end up with one but I have a pretty nice 5200 collection.

      @MaximumRD I basically see two different tracks of Atari technology (up until Lynx). On one side you had the 2600 with all its games and peripherals which begat the 7800. On the other track was the 400/800 computer which spawned the Atari 5200, and later the Atari XE. It would have been nice for the XE to be the all-in-one 7800 Computer Keyboard fully compatible with the library of Atari 8-Bit Computer games and accessories. Instead they gave us an entirely new system to compete for shelf space against the 2600 and 7800, not to mention NES and Sega.

  21. 🏈 Ready for the big game?

      The LA Rams were my team as a kid.  And the 1979 Super Bowl (Rams vs. Steelers) was probably when football fever really took hold of me.  They had an upstart replacement QB with an Italian name, and they gave the mighty Steelers a good fight.  Anyhoo, I ended up switching alliances to the Browns and Seahawks when the Rams left LA.  And of course, that's when they got really good and actually won a Super Bowl.  D'OH! 

      This year, I will watch, but I don't really care so much.  It will be fun to observe the spectacle.  The Rams have a ton of players with Oregon roots, so I'll root for them I guess.
