Throwback Thursdays


Hey, you remember Pac Man? How ‘bout the Atari unit?




We actually scored one of those 1980s Atari units off Ebay a long time ago.  I love it. It’s like having a piece of history.

And yes, we have Pac Man. And Asteroids. I like Asteroids better, but Pac Man was cool. We didn’t have Atari at my house, but I remember screeching in the basement of my friend, Lori’s, house while playing this silly game.

Eating Doritos and playing video games….ahhh, those were the days, right?


Were you a video-playing-kid growin’ up? What was your fav?

  1. The day I conquered Mario III was one of the greatest days of my life. (Not really, but I loved bragging about it to my nephews.)

    Believe it or not, my husband and I have an actual working Atari system hooked up in our basement. It’s so fun going back to the old Space Invaders, Megamania, Pac Man. . .Night Driver.

    I’m going to go play video games now. 🙂

  2. We had an Odyssey, the generic version of Atari. I played a lot of their Frogger and Pole Position knock-offs. My favorite real deal, though, which I didn’t discover until college (yes, I was so sheltered…) is GALAGA.
