I received Raiders of the Lost Ark for the Atari 2600 on Christmas back in 1982. I can vividly recall after all of the mayhem and confusion involved with the ripping of wrapping paper had settled down that I immediately started playing the game…for the entire day. Still one of my favorite Atari 2600 titles even if I never fully scored enough points to earn the Ark of the Covenant.
