HDN Posted June 10, 2021 Report Share Posted June 10, 2021 The Atari 2600 has a lot of classic games, like Pitfall and Space Invaders. HOWEVER, when I say classic in this context, I mean GAMES THAT WERE CLASSICS BEFORE THE VCS CAME AROUND! Mainly board and card games, but also games like Hangman qualify too. But not sports games. I couldn’t think of a better way to put this in the title, so sorry for any confusion. In the early years of the VCS, we saw a lot of conversions of existing, traditional games. Games like Blackjack, Checkers, Chess, etc. Inexplicably, these games have always fascinated me. They’re extremely primitive and have a lot of flaws, but even in an era of modern simulations of these games I find myself going back to Casino and Video Chess a ton! Maybe it’s the charm and novelty of playing these games on one of my favorite systems, even though the game is objectively worse than a modern simulation of it is. But I know this isn’t the same for everyone. I’d like to know what you guys think of these old takes on even older, physical games! Do you still play the creaking 2600 “ports”, or have you moved on to the greener pastures of more modern takes? What are your favorites of these “classic games”? Have a good evening and summer, everyone. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
