I have used every Atari

I have used every Atari gaming system from the 2600 to the 7800 except the Jaguar and I have programmed on every Atari computer system as well from the Atari 400 to the Atari 1040 ST with the exception of the 130XE computer.

Another fan here. Got my

Another fan here. Got my first 2600 in 1982. Played that in colour on the family TV and in b&w on my bedroom TV!!

Have a woody and a 7800 with a small collection of CIB games and a couple of homebrew efforts on-cart (Medieval Mayhem for 2600 and Pacman Collection for 7800). I also have a harmony cartridge. Have even hacked my own PAL60 versions of games like Demon Attack and Kaboom for use with that. Tend to tinker with Stella for emulation but I play mostly on the actual hardware through a VCR with a composite connection to a CRT.

Huge fan of Atari in their golden era of the early 80's in the arcade - played a lot of Tempest, Star Wars , Marble Madness, Battlezone and Asteroids.

Count me in.. I'm so

Count me in.. I'm so dispointed they went Fubar in the end.. such weird managment and ideas in the 90's destroyed a great brand *Opinion. I got my 2600 the first christmas it was in stores and was quite the addict. Even used the Black&white switch I was so old school.. but lucky even then.. I had a 26' CONSOLE TV in my bedroom for my 2600.. I thought i was king of the hill with that setup.In the early days Indy 500 and Starship whre my favorites (of course there where only 7 games (if you dont count math and card games) i know i got 5 games with it, Indy 500, Starship, combat, AirSea battle? Snake and olympics.. was pretty sparce for awhile game wise.. But the next christmas it was great!...

Most of us on here are Atari

Most of us on here are Atari fans. I for one have nearly every Atari system ever, so I'm definitely a fan. Emulator talk is just fine as well...
