Atari, man that takes me back. They had some great games, but also some clunkers. They adapted a lot of arcade games for those systems, which really helped their popularity to take off. There was something great about those simple controllers with the joystick and the single red button.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ! I still have my Atari 1040 ST ! But I don't know if it can be still switch on ! Very fond memories about it, even if now video games are only played on Consoles (I don't like to play computer games anymore).

Hmmm, I'm in the mood to play some Atari games, but it would take an effort to get our Atari system up and going since it is basically packed up, etc. I wonder if there are any good Atari games available to play online. Anyone know of any???? I feel like a good game of pac-man, lol. I really loved playing one of the Spiderman games on the Atari and also the game of Seaquest or Seahunt or Seasomething or other, lol.

What's the last Atari game you remember playing???

There are a handful of games on atari.com, in the online arcade section. I played Centipede there for a minute or two just now. Licensed games like Spider-Man you'd probably have to break the system out for to play legally. There might be a legal version of Pac-Man somewhere, as popular as that was. Google might still have their old logo version of the game archived somewhere.

Did a google search and found this but I'm not sure if this is what you were talking about or not:

Yeah, that's the one I had in mind. It's fun to try it again after all this time.
