LOS ANGELES - Atari wants to take you back in time, and to get there, you can ride a "Centipede" or an "Asteroid," or bounce back and forth between the pixilated paddles of "Pong."

Intellivision? I guess I was over the game playing stage by then. I got hooked and finally had to pry my butt up and get over it. laugh.gif

I'd play it. I love playing the old games on new systems when they're bundled together like that.

Mmm, about thirty years now, designers are going to be bundling games together that we're looking forward to today. GTA series is going to be branded 'retro' ...

I used to have two Atari 2600's, around one hundred games in all. Well, anyway, one day when I was like ten, my mom put each of them out for $10 at a yard sale with fifty games each and they were both sold before I realized they were out there... I have never forgiven her for that.
