Since I came across these last night I haven't been able to stop watching them :D

These are gold XD Would've been funny if the drill sergeant in the Chopper Command one was R. Lee Ermey XD

“Quick to the Atari video computer system! :rofl:.”

Thanks to my Dad I’ve been able to appreciate a lot of these old games, my favourite Atari 2600 game would be Demon Attack. Nice find with these Activision ads MrKite. They were a good watch. :)

No problem. That Freeway one always makes me chuckle for whatever reason.

True story: The customer in the Ice Hockey commercial (who also provides the "ICE HOCKEY BY ACTIVISION!)(*&^%@)(*^!!!" yell at the end) is Phil Hartman. (I think the narrator's voice in the Barnstorming commercial is Gary Owens.)

I saw a lot of these as unlockables on the Activision Anthology for the PS2! =D

(And we all know the best Atari 2600 game ever made was Pressure Cooker. =p)

Excellent ads ! i've never watched them before and about the Atari VCS 2600 I've never really tried the games but maybe I'll sooner or later : thanks !

I knew that was Phil Hartman in the Ice Hockey commercial already. There was also another commercial for Pitfall which featured a 12-13 year old Jack Black.

Wow, those are some fun commercials there. I have played some of those games...especially liked chopper command and I have tried Stampede too, although I didn't like it as much. The Atari games were a lot of fun.

MrKite, I agree with you about R. Lee Ermy for the Chopper Command, that would be awesome!!

I think I have about half of those games. They were all pretty fun, though I never got into Skiing that much. It was kind of hard to control, as I recall.

Chopper Command was great, though. I had forgotten all about that game.
