    Even after the crash. It's still easy to find sealed copies of Solaris, which came out in 1986. And that's not an undesirable game, either.


    You just can't handle my jawusumness responces.

    Yeah, same goes for the majority of the 7800 library.

    And Solaris rocks.

That E.T. turned out as "good" as it did is kind of a miracle. Atari thought that the name alone would sell those millions, as long as it was something that vaguely looked like E.T.
    Warshaw created what is often considered the best Atari 2600 game (Yars Revenge), so it's not like he was some scrub programmer that they had grabbed from the group.
    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."
