totallyterrificpants Posted November 15, 2015 Share Posted November 15, 2015 I'm 25 so obviously I didn't grow up with Atari. I remember I was 12 when I started researching old Atari games, old NES games etc. I got my hands on a 2600 when I was 20 and I love it. I can play Atari for hours. However, I've only met one retro gamer my age who likes Atari. For most, they stop at NES. A lot dismiss what came before it. I've heard from other retro gamers "Atari is bad" "Atari is boring" "Gaming didn't get good until Nintendo" "Only hipsters like Atari" Most retro gamers I know also dismiss Sega and love anything Nintendo released in the past. Why is this? I would say personal preference but I'd say a good 85% of retro gamers my age adore Nintendo and dismiss Sega and especially dismiss Atari.
