I've recently been playing Mario Bros. on the Atari XEGS and Atari 5200, and will probably be updating the reviews.

I find it interesting that while both versions are good, they were obviously programmed completely separate, each with a unique look and feel.

I was arguing with my friend Scott about which was better.  I think the Atari 5200 has more of an arcade feel, but he preferred the crispness of the XEGS.

Your thoughts??

Overall, I prefer the Atari XEGS version. I prefer the sound of Atari 5200 version, and the "feel" of the XEGS version. For instance, I like the beginning of the game animation
