Although I’m extremely passionate about games, I’ve never been able to go back to the Atari 2600. I believe that despite its huge influence, the classic console simply doesn’t hold up. And apparently, I’m not the only one who feels that way.
In one of the the latest “Clueless Gamer” episodes, Conan O’ Brien plays a handful of classic Atari titles, including Combat, Missile Command, Golf, Pitfall and the infamous E.T. The Extraterrestrial (which by the way, I recently included it on my Worst Movie-Based Games list.)
On a more positive note, Space Invaders seems to have aged gracefully.
