Can you believe it? The Atari 2600 is 30 years old this October. That little machine started it all for me. For my 10th birthday my parents took me to the store and bought me one (the store ran an action that included a free game of choice!). Actually I got the 'jr' model, which I found cooler then the big wooden 1st version and it included better controllers as well. People wanting to relive the good old times, the popular 'stella' emulator is available. Several years ago I got myself a TV Games 10-in-1 Atari 2600 Joystick, always good for a few laughs at parties.
The game I picked that day was 'Popeye', a platform type of game with pacman influences. It was one of the most difficult games on the 2600 that I know of.
