    I recall playing Missile Command on my Atari 2600. The sound effects were very cool for the time.

    My uncle had “pong”. If you wanted color, there was a color sheet you put on the TV screen.

    I was fairly pleased with red box, until they charged me a late fee. Nowhere had I seen, either on the box or on the disc container, anything stating clearly that the disc needed to be returned before 9 pm the next day or there would be a full day’s extra charge. I returned one at 10 pm, and was surprised to get charged the extra fee. I find this secret or hidden charge to be cleverly concealed, as I only discovered it as of my recent email noting the charge for a late return. If there is anything pom the red box stating the policy, it needs to be more obvious. I am miffed. jk

    I am not sure what the first game I got was… but the first game I remember saving up to myself was “Missile Command” on the Atari.

    Monochrome game called “Pong” which also had a six-shooter type gun to shoot at a moving target on screen (it was a moving low-res pixel square/block etc.)

    It’s either Pac-Man, Space Invaders, or Combat on the Atari 2600. I had to of been 3 at the time, so the memory is a tad fuzzy.
