Remember the Alamo and the Atari

Recommended Posts

I am a retired service member. I was cleaning out my garage a few weeks ago and came across my old Atari stuff. I found my new hobby and learned about this forum from watching the no swear gamer. I now have introduced the Atari to my children and am remembering how much fun I used to have as a kid. I live in San Antonio. Love to hear from you guys.

Thank you for your service AlamoAtari and welcome to the forums! We're glad you joined us! That's incredibly cool that you've introduced your children to the world of Atari. I hope more parents of the Atari generation will be sharing classic games with their kids as well. I really hope you'll enjoy your time here, make the most of Atari and maybe make some new friends along the way.

 

A special thank you is in order to No Swear Gamer for getting the word out and mentioning Atari I/O in his latest review, we have yet another new member in the forums because of his generosity.

Welcome Alamo!   I too am from the great state of Texas, just 3 1/2 hours up IH-10 near Beaumont!

The Mrs. has lots of family in San Antonio, so we do visit sometimes.

Any chance you'll be coming to the Arcade Expo in Houston this year?   I know a couple of us from here will be there. 

Welcome again!

Ok collection time, I have a working 7800, but the light 6er that I have does not work. I also have the plug and play joystick that has some games on it, it's hard to play paddle games with the joystick. As far as individual carts here we go.

As a kid I had a Nintendo, but I ended up with the Atari, most of my games were from goodwill when they were a quarter a piece. The 7800 and all its games are my wife's. Anyway, I also have a lot of original instructions for the games, but no complete in box or sealed games. I don't think that I could resist the temptation to open up a sealed game, the that has to be the kid in me. I do have a Xbox 360 and a wii.

Welcome to the forums AlamoAtari! You're a great addition to this community. That story about having a Nintendo as a kid but ending up with an Atari is intriguing. Glad you're here  :pole_position_blimp:

I guess what I should have said was that I had both the Atari and Nintendo growing up. My sister took the Nintendo and I got the Atari.
