Top Atari XEGS games?

Postby PAAGaming » August 24th, 2015, 3:46 pm

I have just bought a complete XEGS console with 11 games:
Bug hunt
Flight Simulator 2
Donkey Kong Junior
Tennis
Joust
Qix
Defender
Centipede
Galaxian
Star raiders
Krazy Antics

What are the best games for this system in people's opinions?

You've got some good ones in that list. Other good arcade games include Pac-Man and the Ms, Donkey Kong, Dig Dug, Pole Position, and Moon Patrol. If you get a floppy drive for it, you can try a lot more stuff like Archon and Boulder Dash.

Don't forget missile command is built in it. I think you have to unplug the keyboard to access it.

Im really tempted to get a floppy drive for it. I remember looking at this system in the shops and being 100% confused by it. Turns out it that I might like it as much as my 2600. It kind of reminds me of the Wii U in that regard, confusing but really good.

Lode Runner is surprisingly fun! I also like the XEGS version of River Raid the best. If you can get H.E.R.O. it is an excellent conversion but very expensive.

Other comments:

Atlantis is slightly enhanced.
Space Invaders is great and unique with the no shields.
Frogger II is really fun.
Frogger is good conversion.
Return of the Jedi is underrated.
Pitfall II is amazing and is the best version thanks to the 2nd quest. And, you don't have to deal with the crappy 5200 joystick.
Rescue on Fractalus is great.
