100 Atari games, mostly from the 2600. A lot of classics like Asteroids, Centipede, and Missile Command. But no ET.

Now I know there's a reason you shouldn't blame others when you do something wrong, and that reason is: you might get caught and have to apologize to a bunch of dumb peasants.

I'm fine with no E.T. to be honest.

I still have the Retro Atari pack for DS, which had famous street artists redesign the games' aesthetics. That was pretty rad.

This reminds me that I still need a Vectrex, though. I love the warmth and the glow on proper vector screens.

I had that stupid **** at games Atari 2600 plug and play. Other then adventure (which I absolutely loved) every god damn one of them was a sports game. Got bored with basketball? Why not try SUPER basketball? Or how about xtreme basketball?

Oh yeah but they aren't ALL sports games. It's also got such classics like "hide and seek", "ET" and "Pac Man Seizure Edition"

I've bought old game compilations before (you know, the Namco Museums, the Midway Arcade Treasures, the Intellivision Liveses), and barely played any of them. It was a mistake to buy them.

Like...so maybe this don't make sense to no one but me. But I find I don't want to play 'Ms. Pac-Man' sittin down in my comfy armchair, wearing my pajamas, totally relaxed and comfortable. I want to play 'Ms. Pac-Man' standing up, in a dimly-lit seemy arcade, where the machines are all graffitied up and cigarette-burned and stained with soda spills. I want to play 'Street Fighter II' in a bowling alley, innundated with the sounds of toppling pins and buzzing neon lights, the smells of cigarette smoke, cheap beer, cheap perfume, leather and BO heavy in the air. It's more real to me, homey.

Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection was worthwhile.
