I had a nice 7800 that i bough for xmas one year.. there was a local electronics store that isnt inbusiness anymore who had the 7800 for xmas sale.. (this was like back like back in the mid to late 90s... and it included a huge box full of brand new still sealed both 2600 and 7800 games!

I remember my favourite was the 7800 version of ASTEROIDS.. it was killlllllller!.. i loved that game!! hehe!.. but that was the only game i played on it basically.. so i dont miss the 7800 that much hehe!

Donkey Kong wasnt bad. MESS just corrected the 7800 color pallet in the last release, so it brings back a lot of memories. MS. Pac-Man was pretty similar to the 200/Atari 8-bit computer version, so no big deal there.

A developer just made a cart for the 7800 recently called Pac-Man collection. It plays Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Super Pac-Man and others.

There is also one available for the Colecovision.

I can honestly and sadly say that I have never played an Atari 7800. Maybe someday...

I got one at the late Memphis Flea Market (god t KILLS me to say that) for like $5 a few years back. Games were on par with NES or so. The nice thing was it was 2600 compatable. I brought it home, it worked for 5 minutes and died. Not a big deal, as the carts, controllers and power supply are worth more than $5.

I will never forget American Greetings for buying out the Memphis Drive-In. And for a park! There has to be some future plans other than that. I now buy Hallmark cards only in protest of American Greetings. I will miss that drive-in.

I will soon be a 7800 owner. VGC has one set aside for me. It is just his way to get me to buy more game carts. He is good at getting me to buy stuff.

It was a great system. I only wish Atari would have marketed the NES in the US like Nintendo wanted them to. If they did, they still might be a huge name today. Atari Wii?? Hmmm....

I have to say that my favorite game for the 7800 was Xevious. Great port and still fun to play.
