A long time ago (at least for me anyway), I really REALLY wanted an Atari 2600. Perhaps I wanted it as a Christmas gift; maybe I desired it for a birthday present. Somehow, some way, I was able to put my hands on the early 80's video game system at a young age. The Atari 2600 represented all the fun a young boy or girl could have with just a joystick and a button. I can barely fathom the technology of video games in today's time much less even know how to use a modern-day controller or learn how to maneuver the characters. Today's video games have gotten extremely detailed and almost life-like. But when I plugged a cartridge into that game set back in the 80's, it was pure, legitimate enjoyment! I played a lot of sports games and of course relished some of the classics like Pitfall, Frogger, Qbert, DigDug, and Asteroids. Though the graphics and the technology are acutely outdated by today's standards, the Atari 2600 video game system gave me moments of great fun and exciting memories with my brother growing up in Roswell, GA.
