  1. Atari 8-bit Missile Command with a Trak-ball (in analog trak-ball mode) is truly awesome.

      That same mode is native to the 5200 with 5200 standard joysticks or the 5200's Trak-Ball controller.  It was one of my favorite setups.  Centipede took advantage of the 5200's setup as well.  And that setup is how I play Missile Command on my XEGS.  Pretty sweet playing that way, right?  Diggin' that XL.

      Just so anyone else knows, you must press ctrl-T on Missile Command to activate the analog trak-ball mode.  It makes it as close to the arcade version as I've experienced.  Actually, a little easier since you don't have to decide which missile base to fire from.
