Did anyone own an atari 2600?

That console is extremely significant, because it was the console that first made console-gaming mainstream, years before the NES was released.

  • My dad had an Atari in the early 80s. I was only around 4 or 5 at the time and had no interest in it but I do remember it, and he had a lot of games.

    My friend got a NES in the later 80s and I loved playing it. I'd go to her house and want to play it and she didn't really, since she could play anytime. Looking back, I was probably a jerk about that. She had like every game too though. Paperboy and Jaws were favorites, aside from Mario Bros.

    I currently have NES, SNES, N64, Wii, Gameboy and a ps4.

  • Yes, my sister, and I had an Atari 2600 a very long time ago. Video games have never interested me to be completely truthful.
