Dossier OLD!Gamer: Atari 2600

No give 03/04/2017 came my Dossier OLD!Gamer: Atari 2600. It is the sixth volume of the collection File OLD!Gamer. Who monitors the Skooter Blog have probably seen around my evaluation of the first five volumes:

  1. Dossier OLD!Gamer: Master System
  2. Dossier OLD!Gamer: Super Nintendo
  3. Dossier OLD!Gamer: Playstation
  4. Dossier OLD!Gamer: Mega Drive
  5. Dossier OLD!Gamer: MSX

With the success of the first dossier, about the Master System, the Publisher Europe decided to launch the OLD File Collection!Complete gamer, with books on the Super Nintendo, the PlayStation, the Mega Drive, the MSX, the Atari 2600 and Nintendo (8 bits). It as I commented here in Skooter Blog, I got this collection on pre-sale and I am getting the volumes as they are released.

Dossier OLD!Gamer: Atari 2600

Two 7 volumes of OLD File Collection!Gamer, five consoles I had (and I have!). They are: Master System, Super Nintendo, PlayStation, Mega Drive, and Atari 2600.

The Dossier OLD!Gamer: Atari 2600 is one of the volumes that I expected, because Atari 2600 It was my first video game console. Christmas 1987 is one of the most memorable of my childhood, It was him that I won my Atari 2600, of POLYVOX, with the cartridge from Enduro.

And the history of Atari 2600 is particularly interesting, mainly in Brazil, with all those unauthorized clones but that were manufactured by major brands and sold quietly in the Brazilian stores.

And Dossier OLD!Gamer: Atari 2600 cover all this mess, the first part of the book goes to the page 79. And then comes the catalog with 474 games, in the traditional format with a screenshot, a short text and some information.

It is worth noting that this time they put the size of each game, in kB, in the table. Something that I had suggested when I did the analysis of the Dossier OLD!Gamer: Master System, for this be a console in the manufacturer (Sega) highlighted the size of the ROMs in the boxes of the games.

Check out the pictures and video I made to demonstrate the Dossier OLD!Gamer: Atari 2600:

Final Considerations

With the sixth volume in hands, I can say I'm still quite satisfied with the acquisition of this collection. I got also the Dossier OLD!Gamer: Nintendo, who completed the first season of the collection, and I will speak to him soon.
