Atari 2600, so much better than killing hookers and stealing cars

At least that’s what I think the objective of Grand Theft Auto is.

My roommate is a hard core gamer. He will play for hours, days (!) without stopping! Transfixed. But all his Xbox games have nothing on the Atari. If you were a kid in 1982 or 1983, then you spent hours on this badass machine. So I guess I understand the trance that the roomie gets in, but Spore ain’t no PacMan.

The best part, thanks to the internets and some intrepid programmers, we get to have our nostalgic cake and eat it too! Go here, now. And spend the rest of the day playing Frogger.
