    This has been a real blast to go through. Not just for the games, but also what was happening, but also the why (ever wondered why there are still Atari 3600 games being made as late 1989? This fills in some history blanks).

    My only sour points include that could use some more games from the more forgotten systems (Atari 8-bit family and especially Jaguar) and you kind of wish some Activision Atari 2600 games could be here. Instead, we get breakout and asteroids a couple of times.

    Neat! Well meaning, informative bit of video game preservation and history. Like taking in a museum exhibit. Peep ‘the Atari handshake’ magazine clipping - adorable.

    i love this collection, but i will forever be upset by the obnoxious focus on 2600/early arcade stuff and the lack of atari 8-bit computer library on here. even still, this has a ton of must-play games and plenty of hidden gems. if anything, this is entirely worth it for ruiner pinball being included (u might have to remap the controls tho, on switch at least the button mapping is absurdist on that game)

    This is probably the best game collection I've ever seen, but I am kind of baffled as to what they chose to include. Having zero rep for series like Battlezone while including multiple versions of games like Food Fight and Miner 2049er makes no sense to me, and the Lynx selection is just confusing (they picked Malibu Bikini Volleyball over Blue Lightning?). And this package definitely places a way greater focus on the 2600 than anything else. Considering Digital Eclipse does plan on updating this with more games, hopefully we can see some more variety in the future, but as it stands currently this is a very confusing package. Still an excellent release, both as a collection of games and a history lesson

      Atari sadly sold off the rights to Battlezone a while back. Food Fight isn't great and it seems some rights issues to later games are really tricky. (Warbirds was initially on the switch version, then removed, then re-added due to some copyright but).

      Atari have been re-buying some weird properties lately, so who knows. Maybe they'll add their Jaguar Bubsy game to this.
