Best Atari 2600 Games of All TimeFor those of us old enough to remember the Atari, it is undeniable that this game system was the greatest of all time by the virtue of it being the original. I'm sure all of you reading this poured countless hours of your free time down this time sink, and might have even played hooky from school a time or three to play your newest "cartridge" all day.
The Top Ten
This is the one that started it all. The godfather of all in home video games.
What an absolute classic! Love it!
Yes, Totally! I got this one from a collection (it was in a cereal box). Mm... Adventurey Froot Loops! - Oreanta
I spent hours and hours trying to take the trophy to the golden castle. A marvelous and simple game.
Absolutely the best! Played this way more than any of my other 2600 games. I remember my brother and I discovering the hidden dot in the maze and trying to figure out what its purpose was... and then eventually we found the easter egg! Thanks, Warren Robinett! Awesome memories!
I Love This Game - JPKV 1 Comment
I don't know why, but I loved this game so much. When I was six, I played this. That was only in 2006. I know, how lame were we, no Xbox or anything. Well, this was my fave, nonetheless. Search this on YouTube, and tell me if it can make you laugh. When I heard it, I thought of this game first thing:
The Pit-Mouse Rat
Great game for a classic system.
Awesome adventure platformer!
I can still hear the "duh duh, duh duh..." the audio pulse of the original.
Even with having to use the joystick over the track ball, this game was hours and hours of fun.
You're Joking Right
Why do people hate Pac-Man for the Atari? It's an Atari game so cut it some slack. Granted, its not as good as the arcade port but when I want to play my Atari, Pac-Man is usually the first game I play. Pac-Man Atari is one of the most underrated games I've played (its up there with sonic 06, twilight princess and, Banjo-Kazooie nuts & bolts). I'm really happy to see that this is the top 10. While I'm sure lots of you aren't going to agree with me, I'm sure we can all agree...E.T. F***ing sucks. - ashduck
Ah good old pong great arcade game by atari
Another classic from Activision.
I'm clearly addicted to this game. Too bad they made it like Bomberman: Act Zero for the Xbox sequel.
The absolute BEST game for the Atari 2600, without question.
The funny part about this is the fact that it was made by the same guy who made E.T. - LarryLarrington
This one was just plain fun.
I have no clue why this is only #17. - LarryLarrington
Hours and hours spent on this one.
This was a brilliant racing game, especially for the time.
The only reason this isn't higher is most have never played it! Quite an experience for those days especially!
This is the best Atari game ever! - TommyBranca
