This Atari 2600 VCS ad was in the December 1980 issue of Playboy.

No other video game stacks up to Atari.

You can’t top Atari for fun.

In fact, the Atari Video Computer System is so much fun you'll want to play it all the time. And you can because Atari has more game cartridges to play than anybody else.

Right now you can choose from forty different Atari Game Program cartridges.

There are fast action games like Dodge 'Em and Circus Atari. Thinking games like Video Chess and Backgammon. You can play real life sports with Football and Basketball. And you can learn words and math from Hangman and Fun With Numbers.

Our most exciting game yet comes straight from the arcades, Space Invaders. Only Atari has it.

And more are coming. You'll never outgrow the Atari Video Computer System.

Instead, it grows on you.
