DracIsBack Posted January 21, 2018 Author Share Posted January 21, 2018 Bug Hunt is supposed to be a bad game, but it's the only game they showed which looked close to a NES game. That's what I meant to say; Missile Command's good, but it really looked dated. Actually, I'm beginning to wonder if Atari shouldn't have nixed the 7800 to focus on the XEGS. The XE line had more games than the 7800, similar graphics, and a sound chip. Of course, Atari probably thought they'd be able to undercut Nintendo's price, sell more systems, and attract developers that way. Did Atari know Nintendo signed 2-year exclusive contracts with publishers when this video was released? Naw - I think Hardball and Fight Night also held up pretty well. I remember being impressed with Hardball when I saw it originally. Atari absolutely knew about Nintendo's lock. That's why there were so many computer ports. Mike Katz used his connections in the computer software industry to get those licenses when Nintendo locked up the arcade ports. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
