The A-Z of the Atari 2600

  • PLEASE FOLLOW THE RETROIST recommendations are hit and miss for me. A couple of weeks ago, they got a hit. They recommended a little ebook called The A-Z of the Atari 2600 (Retro Gaming A-Z) by Justin Kyle.
A-Z of the Atari 2600
The A-Z of the Atari 2600 is pretty much like my own ANESthetized. While ANESthetized talked about the Nintendo Entertainment System console and games, The A-Z of the Atari 2600 talks about the 2600 (or VCS for you old-timers) console and games. It covers some 30 or so of the best 2600 games, giving full-color pictures of the box art and screen shots as well.
I bought and read The A-Z of the Atari 2600 and loved it so much that I contacted the author for an interview. He graciously agreed to join me in a podcast about the 2600. You can find that podcast here, and if you’d like to buy the book, you can get that here.

    This is why I love the Retroist! I likely never would have discovered this book … Just ordered it on Amazon! And while I was adding it to my cart I came across ‘Terrible Nerd’ by Kevin Savetz, which looks very interesting … 2 new books to read during this miserably cold Canadian winter!

    Hey Fraze, please leave the author a positive review on Some folks left unkind and unfair reviews, which unfairly drives the star rating down. Really appreciate it if you counteracted that with a good one.
