Do you remember...


Paul and I are thinking of getting the Wii video game system for Christmas and it started to get me thinking of how much I was into video games when I was a kid and a teenager. I had EVRY game system you can imagine but my all time favorite is the Atari 2600! I was seven years old when the Atari 2600 came out and I was so excited when my parents bought for me. I was hooked on Pac-Man, Asteroids, Space Invaders and Position. So, I looked online to see if I could find an original Atari 2600 and I found one! It was listed on eBay with 20 games and I won the auction. It just came in the mail today and I am so excited to play these old games that I loved when I was a kid. How fun it will be to relive a big part of my childhood. It's amazing how we live in a time where you can really get whatever it is you wnat online. I love it! How many of you had an Atari 2600???

The Wii is a blast esp if you have friends over. What i like about it is what I love about Atari...its so damn easy. The other more high tech sytems you have to a rocket scientist or under the age of 30 to figure out the godamn control.

I got my Wii on ebay..not much of a deal but I could not find it in a store.

Frank, thanks for the Wii tips, I will look on eBay if I cannot find it elsewhere. :-)
