this is awesome!
did it taste like pacman popsicle?
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!
Playing Manic Miner on the ZX Spectrum. Good times 🙂
Foi aí que tudo começou!!!
NES "Blaster Master" and "Mario 1"
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.
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 🙂
my first system i ever got.
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.
I also had an amstrad once.. and a c=64 and an zx 🙂
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.
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!
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!
Balloonacy and Gyruss were my first games on the Atari 400. And a self-written fishing game.
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.
Love it… Shame to eat it
Zaxxon on Commodore 64!
Ha! Pole position and Maniac Mansion! Awesome…
I remember Impossible Mission… Stay awhile.. stay foreveeeeeeeer!
pong….used to play for hours lol; then I got the atari system. Wish I had kept both of them now.
I still have a hand drawn map of Impossible Mission II. Took me a week to get it done 🙂
those were the days. 3 Lives per game, no continues.
Eating that cake would have been one thing I finished with that system.
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…
Good ol days of gaming
that was my first console… i remember River Raider.. that game was SUPER HARD…
Just for fun, I looked back for a screen shot…wow! http://www.webomatica.com/wordpress/images/blog/apple_iie/one-on-one_lg.gif
Get your invisible dot for Adventure to walk through walls! See the glowing golden text… Pitfall, and Pitfall II The Climb for Quick-claw.
my old memories…Atari
PITFALL – I spent hours playing that – I kicked ass!
My first gaming experience was Atari was well followed by Vextrex.
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.
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.
Oregon Trail was the shiznit. So was Montezuma's Revenge and Sherwood Forest.
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
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!
is this a cake?
Now I miss my Atari…
That was my first console. :')
Ohhhh my wedding cake is chosen! Now all i need is the groom.
+Scott Schneider Totally played montezuma revenge the other day in a hangout… i was forever alone in the moment .. as everyone thought i was crazy… Montezuma's Revenge: Featuring Panama Joe for the Apple II
I had another one by cartridges, but I don't remember its model
its a place to play alot of games when i was young
+Christopher Hill takes me back forgot about that one. Come a long way in 30 years. I still remember
