And I love how the embrace it! Obviously reaching the mid/late 20-40 year olds with this approach though. Do people younger than that remember it? Mmmmmmmm nostalgia. Mar 18, 2008 TheWorldOfM reply This goes really well with my post:http://theworldofm.wordpress.com/2008/03/04/mario-retrocool/ I remember my first Atari game was Centipede. I think that was when I started needing glasses... But why are they advertising again anyway? Mar 18, 2008 Dabitch reply That's a really good question. Unless they started massproducing the Atari laptop this guy built I'm not interested. ;) Mar 18, 2008 purplesimon reply Like Australia, it could be that in New Zealand it is still like 1972 :) Sorry, couldn't resist. Mar 18, 2008 TheWorldOfM reply Plus, the only Atari I know now is a small companythat makes games that dont even make it big. If they think they're going to counter that using nostalgia, sadly it aint going to work Mar 18, 2008 purplesimon reply Even though this thread is probably not going to be read, I simply had to post this link on the off-chance people follow the comments sidebar. These should have been Atari games. *grin* Apr 22, 2008 Dabitch reply HA! Yes! "obligatory educational game", "It's Fucking Checkers", "Every Sport Ever In Pong Form" and "Backgammon For Friendless People" - that's inspired man. Apr 22, 2008 purplesimon reply Thanks Dabitch, knew I could count on you to be my sole reader! Apr 22, 2008 Allan1 reply Purp S: - Those are GREAT! The covers are so close to the real things - I was trying to remember which ones are based on which (real ones, that is). (Of course, I never owned a 2600, but I played a lot of games...). Apr 22, 2008 Dabitch reply I read the new comments thread all the time, that's how i find the spammers to ban around here. (so many of them, so sad.)
