My only gripe...they put LABELS on those beautiful labels!  Whyyyyy?  😞 

Yeah, that's not great. At least they aren't very sticky. I haven't had any problems taking labels off with a hair dryer before, though. Still, not a good thing to do in the first place. I'm not excusing their bad behavior.

They have a great selection of A7800 games. They even have the Fairchild Channel F games there. Now, that is really old school. I think that the Channel F was the first commercial game system to have interchangeable game carts, wasn't it? I know it preceded the A2600, but I think it was the first to market with game carts.

Yes and no. The OG Odyssey from 1972 had interchangeable game cards, but they really didn't have any data stored on them. They just had the system make slight variations in the same basic game, which was basically just Pong (before Pong, of course). Each game depended on the overlays and you had to obey your own rules and keep score. Many games used cards, game boards, overlays, etc. Many of the games were just video board games, like Haunted House and Football. The Channel F released in 1976 and was the first console to have interchangeable ROM cartridges. Unlike the Odyssey's games, each game was a completely different experience with its own assets, rules, sounds, etc.
