The Greatest Console Games of All Time! (Atari 2600 Edition)


I seem to recall there was a second D&D game for the Intellivision, though I never got to play it. Treasure of Tarmin, I believe.
Both AD&D games got ported to the Intellivision Lives compilation, FWIW, albeit stripped of D&D branding (though Intellivision Lives is itself a decently old game).

My strange uncle had a padded chair that he wrapped the arms in tinfoil and took apart a controller and somehow made gloves with the electrodes glued to the fingers. He could sit in the chair and tap his fingers to make the tanks turn and shoot like some madman typing.

I also recall my father not playing combat unless we played straight and not had bouncing bullets.

My top tier is:
  • Pitfall 2 - made it to the last scorpion and missed
  • Star Raiders - a friend had it on the 5200, which is where I saw it before we got ours on the 2600
  • Adventure - classic early game

Others I vaguely remember...
  • Yar's Revenge
  • Missile Command
  • Pitfall
  • Empire Strikes Back
  • Pac-Man
  • Space Invaders
  • Frogger
  • Berzerk
