Most Fun System to Collect For?

This is a good topic.  I have enjoyed collecting for the Colecovison lately.  I was surprised that there a few computer games (One-on-One and Gust Buster) that were actually made into Coleco cartridges.  And the Atari port of Galaxian is just like the critic called it -...

Tecmo Super Bowl Genesis

The Critic's review pretty much sums it up perfectly.  It is basically the same game which isn't a bad thing except you would expect more with it being a Genesis.<br><br>I highly recommend getting Tecmo Super Bowl II or III: Final Edition.  It's the same great gameplay with double the...

2013/4/28: Atari 2600: Dodge 'Em, Street Racer

This review prompted me to do a sort by grade of your 2600 reviews.  I was curious what games from 1977-1979 warranted an A- or better....and only two did - Adventure and Indy 500.<br><br>I had thought Dodge 'Em was released earlier than 1980.  It is one of my personal favorites and you ar...

Looking thru old catalogs is fun

I totally agree - and am glad I kept them (the catalogs)!!!!<br><br>This keyboard attachment for the 2600 grabbed my attention.  I wanted it.  Forget the home computers of the day.....even after buying several $9.99 games (Super Breakout, Krull, Galaxian) from the discount bin at K Mart I ...

Atari5200 Trackball

At Astrosmaher - get a 5200 with a track ball & get Centipede, Missle Command and Tempest (from Atari Age).....Every negative thing you have ever heard about this system and it's controllers are forgotten with a track ball!<br><br>Any suggestions about reducing the squeak?<br><br>Seriously.....<...
