Happy 30th birthday, Atari 2600!


That’s right, the first 2600 units rolled off the assembly line in October of 1977, delighting both children and kids at heart with games like Pitfall and Pole Position, and helping distract the nation after the untimely death of the King, the tragic crash of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s plane, and Pele’s retirement. So here’s to you, dear 2600: Atari may only be a shadow of its former self today, but you’ve lived on in our fond memories,
