Atari 2600 Games I Kind Of Remember

Atari 2600 Games (Images courtesy Mightygodking.com)
By Andrew Liszewski

Here’s a great post from the people at Mightygodking.com who claimed to have found a genuine working-condition Atari 2600 at a garage sale, complete with a huge stack of classic games that they’ve scanned for our enjoyment. In reality, it’s a huge post of classic video game artwork that’s been updated with titles and descriptions that more accurately reflect what’s being depicted on the cover. If you’ve ever looked at an old video game and wondered how the artist came up with those over-the-top covers when the games barely featured a few pixelated sprites you’ll find these pretty amusing. And really, do you have a better way to spend your Saturday morning?

    The covers did a great job of selling games that were absoutely horrible sometimes. I would call it false advertising today.
