This web page is my dedication to my favorite video game system ever. The Atari 2600. I got my first control deck used with about 20 games or so from my cousin when he decided that Coleco was better back in . . . oh, I don't know how long ago it was, but I was still small at that age.
Anyway, I used to love that thing. Everyday before school, a bunch of my friends would come over and we'd play Atari until the bus came. Warlords tournaments with four players at once was always a popular choice, as well as Combat (there's just nothing quite like blowing up your friends before school), River Raid, Keystone Kapers, Solaris, etc... You name it. If I had it, it was played.
Since then, I've amassed quite a collection, including hundreds of games and many control decks, most of which still work. I started collecting seriously around the fall of 1993, relying mostly on my friends (who would usually just give me whatever they had) and the local flea market. Then, about two years later, I discovered the internet and the collection really took off. Of course, most of my current additions come from trades, but I still find some of those rarities once in a while.
Click on these for a list of my Atari games and manuals, my trade lists, a list of places to mail order NEW games, and a list of the games (with prices) available through the Radio Shack Unlimited catalog. Don't miss the on-line catalogs below in the links section, either. There are some great bargains to be found out there on those hard-to-find games.
I also have games for Intellivision, Fairchild, Coleco, Magnavox Odyssey^2, Nintendo, Vectrex and Atari Jaguar. Here are my game lists. I hope to add more soon. I have a Fairchild Video Entertainment System, ColecoVision, NES, Gameboy, Jaguar, Odyssey^2, a Vectrex, and an Intellivision, all in working condition. The most recent addition to my collection are three actual arcade machines, a Spy Hunter upright, a Super Pac-Man coctail table, and a Black Widow. You can view an "action" photo of the Spy Hunter and Super Pac-Man by clicking this section of the text. And just in case you were wondering, I'm the guy at the coctail table. (My friend was hogging the Spy Hunter.)
More fun photos to come! Check out a picture from an 80s party that one of my friends had. I couldn't resist bringing along a 2600 and, of course, it was a big hit.
