I still have my original Atari 2600 console. I don't have 90 games, but got plenty of memories!

Yeah, we saw an end cap at Wally World like two weeks ago with an assortment- Atari 2600, Sega Genesis, Intellivision, ColecoVision... We were really tempted to get all of them, but kids tend to whine when not fed and that would interrupt the game play.

We sell them at the retail store where i work, 92 games for $40 I was thinking about getting one just for the nostalgia factor for me and the Mrs. I am sure she has never played one. I think I got an original 2600 back in '78? I was the most popular kid on the block. We sat there in the living room for hours playing all the classics, combat, space invaders, asteroids, berserk, adventure, pitfall, frogger and a bunch I can't even remember right now.
