old time console
We are going way back here folks. My very first console game system was the Fairchild.

Is anyone old enough to have played this one?

My dad was a manager at a electronics store. He brought home other ones that he let me try out but this one he bought. A few years after that I bought the Atari 2600.
We also had a VCR that was the size of a VW.

First one for me was the Atari 2600.
I don't think I ever saw a Fairchild, except in magazines etc.
