Silver Back Posted April 6, 2022 Report Share Posted April 6, 2022 There's a lot of reasons to be drawn to something. We enjoy items and activities that give us some sort of value. But that being said, people seem to be drawn to video games for their entertainment value more so then other forms of media. We frequent these forums because we enjoy Atari more than most other forms of games and entertainment. So what is it about the Atari 7800 that draws you to check these forums for new topics and insights? What do you like about the 7800? I'll start by saying that in the early days I was just drawn to video games as most of us were as kids. Video games were fun and gave me a reprieve from reality. But as an adult I came back to the Atari 7800 initially for nostalgia. But I've stayed because it fits my game playing sensibility more than modern console do. I usually spend about 30 minutes at a time playing games before I have to do something like go to work, cook, clean, etc. Modern games demand a lot of time investment that I just don't have, but I do have time for a game or two of Joust or Food Fight. And when I do have more time I choose to play through Midnight Mutants, or give Fatal Run a go, or even take up the back nine of Ninja Golf. Of course I enjoy other games and systems but I think the Atari 7800 represent my favorite era of gaming and my life. So what do you like about the Atari 7800? Collecting? The asthetic? Nostalgia? Let's share some thoughts! Thanks everybody! DegasElite 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
