I grew up playing the Atari 2600 back in the early 80′s. I remembered my parent’s basement in Toronto where they setup the game in a corner, next to the fireplace. During winter, it got pretty cold down there, but I didn’t care. I would play for hours. I would invite friends over, and played a few games of Combat, Pitfall, Missile Command, Space Invaders, or Pacman.
When I went shopping with my family, I would stop at the stores’ window where they displayed the games. I begged my parents to get me a copy of Air Sea Battle, Warlords, or Video Pinball. Why? Because the box art looked so good! The actual game quality was questionable, but I didn’t care: the picture on the box was awesome!
Below are some of those awesome, nostalgia inducing, Atari 2600 box arts. I can stare at them all day!
