For all you young whipersnappers...PONG

There have been so many variation of pong since the original. But pong is still fun to play, in a weird "omg, i can't believe we played this" kind of way.

Next party I go to I'm digging out my old atari with pong and taking it with me

I had a pong machine once....but it broke....so I got rid of it.


Pong was cool back in the day when it was all you had; I used to fight with my sisters over the controller......



Oh the days when Pong ruled.....

I never owned the console that just played pong but I did own an Atarti 2600 that played it.
Did anyone play Adventure on the Atari. You character was just a block with a line for a sword.

Wow. Gamers even older than me. My first was the 2600. Combat, Pinball, Kaboom!, Pac-Man (I was 3. Lay off). Loved Pong. Never played Adventure, though. Odd, since that is my favorite genre nowadays.

I have played Gauntlet, thank you very much. It was just a veerrrrryyyyy looooooooooong time ago. Makes me feel like I'm already covered in cobwebs and chains, Marley-style.
