Welcome and glad to hear someone else fired up an old flame!

 

What are some of the other favorites in your collection? You can check rarity here at Atari Age too, to see if you might happen to have something a little harder to find like Pengo, Swordquest Waterworld, Crazy Climber, Chase the Chuckwagon, etc.

Welcome aboard!! :) Great to hear your 2600 is still working! These consoles are really durable and last practically forever. Hope you enjoy everything here. Any questions you have. That's what the forums are for. You have thousands of retrogamers to help you out. :)

 

 

you know...i was considering selling all my atari stuff earlier today...but now...I just dont know if I can part with it lol

 

It's amazing how long this thing has lasted....some of it up in a hot attic, some in a closet, at LEAST 4 or 5 hurricanes, etc etc.

 

They just dont make em like they used to anymore lol

When I first got a 7800 and about 20 games from a customer back in 1995 and took it home and hooked it up, the light bulb went off in my head. I had that great sense of nostalgia and thought that others my age would probably feel the same. That is when I started buying up everything I could find and discovered a whole new world of vintage video games with Atari 2600 games I never knew existed (I figured there may be 100) along with other systems I never even heard of. When I began to accrue some duplicates, I then started to put them out for a buck or two in the store. I didn't sell any, but it did bring in a bunch more stuff from customers who didn't want the old systems.

 

Anyway, enjoy it. As someone said here, the majority of Atari games are not worth much and you should be able to fill in gaps for $1-3 on many games.
