Atari Christmas Checklist

This list is just as applicable for me now as it was for me in the 1980s.

  1. Hardly anyone gets nostalgic for underwear from the 1980’s. Although I do kinda miss the old Fruit of The Loom logo.

    As cool as Underoos in my size would be, this would be a pretty sweet Christmas list! Gotta add Yar’s Revenge! Tell me the whole screen blowing up when you destroyed the ship wasn’t awesome!

    Those checklist icons are great!
    Wonder if I could outfit my desktop with those.

    Greatly enjoyed checklist ads in comics and catalog selection coupons with checklists in the backs of Famous Monster, Starlog and the like.
    I’d spend a lotta quality time imagining what to pick if I only had two or three choices (never just one) and what I’d do with the items.

    Turns out, I had lots of imaginary fun with ungotten items.

    Didn’t take up much space either.

  4. Always liked playing Jungle Hunt in the arcade and on the 2600. The arcade I went to as pretty small and there was not much of a line to play it, unlike Miss PacMan and Donkey Kong… Now will have to get my USB 2600 controller out and play a few rounds on an emulator….
