    GervGirl got a reaction from greenween in Which 2600 model are you particularly fond of?   
    I like them all and still trying to complete my collection of all! Still working on completing the 2600 which I think at this point I just need the heavy sixer and the othe Jr. (I do believe there was two designs of the Jr.) Of course I would like to get my hands on 2800 but think that would be almost a impossible. The 2600 will always be my favorite, it is where my love for video games started!

    I agree! I was very young when we got it and it was because of this game that I played all the time that made me love PAC-Man as a kid! I was so young that I played this first before the arcade one. In my mind I thought they made it that way to be harder so it was more of a challenge. Lol Was not till I got older that understood. I was just amazing to be able to play these kind of games at home back then!

    My first time joining finally!!! Yay! My first and second try. With my old joystick that still sticks at times lol Playing old school. I was reminded very quickly of the cramping in the hand playing this. I remember as a kid I use to think if I just played it all the time I would build up the muscles in my hand and it would eventually not hurt when I played. Yeah that never happened. Lol

    Space Invaders was the bomb.  Like Asteroids, Missile Command, and others...it was close enough to the arcade version to be awesome.
     
    Pac Man was not.  Yes, we all bought it and played it.  But it was embarrassing to show to friends.  ESPECIALLY those who had KC Munchkin.  We'd been ragging on their terrible Odyssey 2 for ages...and there they were showing us up with their illegal bad-boy game that kicked the pellets on our round pizza-based hero.

    Atari Pac-Man is what it is. We all know that it could have been so much better for all of the reasons mentioned above. As I kid, I didn't much care. Had I been a little older at the time, it may have been more of a disappointment. As it was, I gratefully played the heck out of it. I also played on a B&W TV set so the colors didn't matter much to me.

    Opps...there goes another ghost or two. This Pac-Man does allow the player some control over where the ghosts travel. And if you watch long enough you can predict where they are going to go even after eating a power pill. Seriously, spend the first level taking time to move a little and watch how the ghosts react to where Pac-Man is...do the same for eating a power pill. You may find a pattern.

    Yeah I have seen the videos on replacing it and does not look hard at all. Just need to make the time oh and order the part. Lol. ....... My oldest is 14 and she likes the room as a game room. She lost interest in toys at about 10-11 so hoping by then the 4 year old will be a gamer like the rest of us. Lol Fingers crossed ????

    I am actually excited for it! I will not sell my first born for one but I would really like to have it. I did get the NES one but I was not the one who went hunting for it, my step daughter did so my husband could give it to me for Christmas. So if that happen again this year I will be just as overly excited like last year. Atari was my fist come system and SNES was my second. My dad did not fall for the NES hype so I only got to play it when I was at friend's houses. But when I got the SNES (years after it first came out) I was in love with that thing. So yeah even though I have a handful of the games on it I still would really like to have one.
