One thing is certain, if you are reading this, you have heard of Atari. The granddaddy of gaming, where it all started many years ago. Fast forward into the 21st century and Atari as we used to know it no longer exists, having been bought out and sold more times than Pac-man has gobbled yellow dots. Now they exist as a publisher, just a name to add a touch of Panache to a game cover. Just because Atari as a company died, it's fan base certainly lived to tell a tale or two. The two main classic consoles 2600 and 7800 are being given a whole new lease of life by "bedroom" programmers all over the world.
Why? Well to put it simply, because Atari games are great! Simple, addictive and above all fun. Not a million miles away from today's mobile and Android games market. So just what is out there for the discerning Atari owner? You are spoilt for choice, whether a 2600 fanboy or a 7800 fanatic, one word AtariAge.
Yep, AtariAge, a website and store dedicated to all things Atari. From the 2600 to the ill fated Jaguar. Every machine made by atari has it's own support groups there.
The 7800 is not left out either, with some sterling efforts from Bob DeCrescenzo .
