Forums - General Discussion - How many of you actually ever owned an Atari?

Technically by brother owned the Atari 2600, but I had the Colecovision.

I have a 2600, good old wood paneled bad ass that it is...I still play Asteroids or Space Invaders from time to time.

I owned a 2600 after finding it and some games in the attic of a house that we moved into when I was 6.  I found alot of stuff up there. people stuff their attics with junk thats to good to throw away and then just leave it there when they move.  I found my intellivison in the exact same manner in a different house a few years later(i was either 8 or 9).

I sadly no longer own either. 

I have a 2600. I play Phoenix and Centipede every now and then.

Me and my brother had 2 or 3 Atari 2600's. Darn things kept breaking on us. Still, we had some awesome times on the 2600. Pitfall!, Pac-Man, River Raid....

i had an Atari 7800

i see many people state they had an Atari 2600
but if you bought or got one after 1985 it was probably a 7800


I had a 2600, but oddly didn't have an NES. My first "modern" console was the SNES.

I remember loving Mario Bros. for the 2600 but being really frustrated it wasn't Super Mario Bros.

My consoles and the fates they suffered:

Atari 7800 (Sold), Intellivision (Thrown out), Gameboy (Lost), Super Nintendo (Stolen), Super Nintendo (2nd copy) (Thrown out by mother), Nintendo 64 (Still own), Super Nintendo (3rd copy) (Still own), Wii (Sold)
