Yeah, that was my first love. I could actuality beat it at Chess, and I can't really play Chess. It had all the best games except for Pac-Man, a really bad implementation. It was fun, and gave me the realization that there was something better to use my screen for than TV. Then I bought a TI-99/4A and later a C64, then an Amiga. Those were the days, but these are way better!

Atari wasn't my best, but it was my first. 40 years? Wow. I'm old.
