Aaron takes a trip down memory lane with some of his favorite Atari 2600 titles from his youth. Or as we used to call them back in the day… “Atari games.” Atari 2600 games were simple given the limitations of the hardware, but when they were done properly it made for a truly memorable and fantastic gaming experience that transcends generations.
From Aaron: “I still have the Atari 2600 that my parents had in the house when I was a kid growing up. Technically that thing is older than me. My parents passed it down to me and somehow this thing still works! They don’t make them like they used to. For me as a little kid the simple joystick and single button controller was all you needed for great night of gaming. Before Nintendo, Sega and all the rest… for me there was always the Atari 2600. Or as I like to call it, The Atari.”
