Geek things we all think about sometimes...

This is an Atari Cake, Yes a Cake!

What was your first computer gaming experience?

Atari was also the first computer thing I ever did… followed by a C64…

I seriously don't think I ever beat a single game on the systems… but it never made it any less fun… how times have changed.

  2. alexis celis says

    ja genial

  3. M. Sean Kaminsky says

    did it taste like pacman popsicle?

  4. Jeff Leger says

    One set of grandparents had an Atari, one had an Intellivision, and we had a Colecovision….so we pretty much covered all grounds. Then we got a C64. I was pretty hooked on that Smurfs game for Coleco. Used to hate sliding those plastic cards into the keypad thing though!

  5. Gareth Morgan says

    Playing Manic Miner on the ZX Spectrum. Good times 🙂

  6. Matthew Antwi says

    NES cake?

  7. Josh Kashif says

    486

  8. Alvaro Amorim says

    Foi aí que tudo começou!!!

  9. Sara Eleta Reid says

    NES "Blaster Master" and "Mario 1"

  10. robert mikinka says

    That is one awesome looking cake. At the time Atari was awesome. I still have mine. Its hilarious to hook it up once in awhile and see the graphics.

  11. Jan Wildeboer says

    Atari 400, a ZX81 with a hand soldered 16kB expansion. Later on a 800XL and finally a 1040STf before I switched to Linux on a 386 🙂

  12. will silverbac says

    my first system i ever got.

  13. Simona Gary says

    Very cool…

  14. Ernest Zak says

    One of my first computer games was trying to land an Apollo LEM on the moon which was a DOS program. For some reason, it was alot more fun back in those days.

  15. Davy Joos says

    I also had an amstrad once.. and a c=64 and an zx 🙂

  16. Ken Nagrod says

    Atari was my first experience too, but the first one I owned (as in parents owned) was Colecovision with the Atari adapter. C64 was my first computer.

  17. Sean Thomas says

    I hope there are more like you +Amanda Blain that I just haven't met yet(so far my roommate is the only one who has had a commodore64, and she was hesitant to admit it).. I can't remember what kind of atari I had, but comodore 64 was what I was into. Newer than that, but maybe the best, was sega mastersystem, I was just thinking the other day how much quality how packed into so many of those games!

  18. Nina Pelletier says

    Coleco vision was my first gaming electronic gaming experience (if you don't count that 4 color light up Simon game) I loved mouse trap and the zipper game, I think it was called Dr. Pepper.

    After that it was atari – I played pole position so often we had to keep buying new joysticks, the rubber on those things wore out quickly!

  19. Jan Wildeboer says

    Balloonacy and Gyruss were my first games on the Atari 400. And a self-written fishing game.

  20. Billy Spelchan says

    Most the arcade games were designed to go on forever so you couldn't beat them. My cousin had a 2600 while I decided to get a commodore 64 thinking that I could make my own games. I still remember typing in games from magazines like compute and ahoy. Great fun.

  21. Lord Parker says

    Love it… Shame to eat it

  22. Lambert Schlumpf says

    Zaxxon on Commodore 64!

  23. Amanda Blain says

    Ha! Pole position and Maniac Mansion! Awesome…

    I remember Impossible Mission… Stay awhile.. stay foreveeeeeeeer!

  24. Brian Dillree says

    pong….used to play for hours lol; then I got the atari system. Wish I had kept both of them now.

  25. Jan Wildeboer says

    I still have a hand drawn map of Impossible Mission II. Took me a week to get it done 🙂

  26. Cameron Silva says

    Galaga FTW!
    those were the days. 3 Lives per game, no continues.
    Eating that cake would have been one thing I finished with that system.

  27. Anacron Allen says

    Epic.

  28. Christopher Hill says

    I can't remember which was first – the Apple IIc we used for games with the tiny green monitor (One on One – Dr. J vs. Larry Bird) or the Atari 2400 we had…

  29. Charles Bodman says

    Good ol days of gaming

  30. Erick Wright says

    looks tasty

  31. Eli Fulton says

    that was my first console… i remember River Raider.. that game was SUPER HARD…

  32. Christopher Hill says

  33. Porter Woodward says

  36. Scott Schneider says

    My first gaming experience was Atari was well followed by Vextrex.

  37. Jay Dee says

    Apple iic green screen. Even Radio Shack had the Tandy Knock off ether way it was a word processor. Lots of reading No graphics
    Oregon Trail was about the only game.

  38. Naren Mangtani says

    Ha! Mine was a Atari too! WAY BACK! Don't remember the model but didn't look like this. I have a post on my profile too where I mentioned it to one of my friend who used to come over a lot to play this.

  39. Scott Schneider says

    Oregon Trail was the shiznit. So was Montezuma's Revenge and Sherwood Forest.

  40. Tim PAULING says

    Jeez that's perfect. Until I read it was a cake I just thought it was an old ATARI. You've done a perfect job

  41. Christopher Hill says

    Au contraire, +Jay Dee – see my link – that was basketball on an apple iic. If you dunked right, you could break the backboard glass…and watch is slowly fall to the ground. There was a little robot sweeper that used to come clean it up, if I recall!

  42. chris hollins says

  59. chris hollins says

    its cool like it

  60. Christopher Roberts says

    cool cake my mom would be impressed

  61. Luis MartĂ­nez says

    +Candice Hanlon If our kids could to know how we enjoy with a computer, having met all its evolution until today … But could not even imagine, and that makes us a privileged generation.

  62. Andi Drew says

    Our parents got us Intellivision

  63. Kenna Austin says

    Wow so realistic

  64. Sebastian Speed says

    thats awesome

  65. Nina's Cleaning says

    thats really cool!!

  66. Michael Chandler says

    I live in New York City and wouldn't have room for something like this. Where the heck would I put the monitor? If the monitor is the tabletop, where the heck would I put my coffee cup? I'm sorry. Brooklyn tables are not for frivolity.

  67. Oles Lozovyy says

    I'll never forget those days, my father got me one from Germany it was 1989 ))

  68. Alex Zinovenko says

    I received my Atari in 1978 and played it to no end. the Activision titles i always thought were superior to the Atari released titles. Then the Atari 400/800 XL computer series got my attebtion and I was hooked on Infocom's titles.(text adventures)
    I look back on those days with a lot of fondness.Good times. BTW, I like the Atari cake photo.

  69. Kenny Magee says

    Back in the early Atari days, did the games actually have an ending? I remember playing the 2600 and never "beating" any game. But had a total blast playing them all.

  70. Hannah McNeil says

    I feel so young…..O.o

  71. Henry Hernandez says

    Nice

  72. Morvarid Dabirashrafi says

    but lets talk about first generation of a game when computer had not come yet,yes TV Game,just two white dots in a dark screen of TV!

  73. Hannah McNeil says

    Older Generation People: "Yes, sure lets do it!"
    Younger Generation (like me): "O.o"

  74. Luis MartĂ­nez says

    +Kenny Magee ,there were no end in those games. It was a bucle which increased its velocity till the madness. But I remember that in my dreams believed when I'll reach an imaginary stage, another world full of perfect graphics and totally interactive will come, but never appeared. :)))

  75. Luis MartĂ­nez says

    LOL, +Morvarid Dabirashrafi , Tennis?.

  76. Dennis Chirchirillo says

    That is so kool lol

  77. Christopher Marks says

    I remember playing the Atari. I would say my first video game experience I actually remember would be playing the two person Pac Man game table. The original NES would be the first home system we had. I even remember playing the original Sega. Yes, there was a system before Sega Genesis.

  78. SIDNEY SOTELO says
