The Atari Games Story | Nostalgia Nerd

Atari Games, were literally the creators of Atari Games, in the guise of Atari arcade games. You see, back in the 70s, Atari was one company, but as we get to the mid 80s, it’s ownership split. The consumer division was bought by Jack Tramiel (of Commodore fame), whilst the arcade games division went in a separate direction. Last week we explored the consumer division of Atari, whilst this week’s video game documentary is looking at the arcade division, Atari Games.
