Cool. I had the giant floppy disks to play anything.


Atari had the small cartridges.


Playing those games actually conjures memories of friend's houses, neighborhoods, even smells..

I owned the commodore 64, the game loading by cassette was horrid but we gleefully awaited the games. Also had an 8-bit Atari and because it was a cartridge and loaded quickly we played it more.

My first computer was the Apple ][ and the floppy disks were fun.

i grew up with a game that had pong.

i don't know the brand name.

it had a rifle and pistol that plugged into it to play a couple of different shooting games....skeet and something else.

the shooting games only worked well if the rest of the room was dark.


this woulda been in the mid 70's

Yeah, my neighbour had the Atari Pong C-100 and I got to play it when I was 5 years old. That would be 1977.

No one has ever seen a perfect circle, nor a perfectly straight line, yet everyone knows what a circle and a straight line are.
Perceived circles or lines are not exactly circular or straight, and true circles and lines could never be detected since by definition they are sets of infinitely small points.

Nice, thanks. I said Tank Battle earlier--it should have been "Coleco Combat! (77)"
