Defender II
Alien
Star Ship

Air-Sea Battle

Breakout

Pac-Man (yes, Pac-Man)

River Raid

River Raid II

Radar Lock

HERO

Space Invaders

Adventure

Starmaster

Video Olympics

Xenophobe
Galaxian

BTW I see you're in Stevens Point; my wife went to UWSP. :) (We're both from Wausau.) I suppose Belt's is closed for the year now, eh?

I was born during the time Atari was the big thing (Summer 1981). I wish I would have grown up during the late 70's/early 80's to experience it more hand. Anyways my top ten list of Atari 2600 games follows as this. And choosing a top ten list for this system is difficult to narrow down. So here it goes.

 

10. Solar Fox

9. GORF

8. Berserk

7. Adventure

6. Yars' Revenge

5. Enduro

4. Space Invaders

3. Missle Command

2. Pitfall 2

1. H.E.R.O.

 

Honorable Mentions:

 

Pitfall

Pressure Cooker

Venture

Kaboom!

Vanguard

Frogger

Q*Bert

Combat

River Raid

Atlantis

Yeah shes closed up alright, but that's okay it gives you a chance to stay inside with a cup of coffee next to the woodgrain machine and to get some high scores! I like your list, I've been lookin for River Raid II for some time!

Aw, we're swinging through Point on the way to the 'Sau for Thanksgiving...though it's probably gonna be too cold for ice cream anyway. Definitely gonna stop by Game Generations though (the ones in Wausau suck).

 

You're gonna hate me, but...I actually found a copy of River Raid II (AND Subterranea, at the same time!) at the Goodwill in Stevens Point a few years ago. I've gotten a ton of great stuff there over the years but it's really dried up now.

 

Luckily River Raid II's not that hard to get online though. You should be able to get a decent loose copy for $15-20. Have you ever played it before, in emulation or anything?
