This is nostalgic fun
on March 14, 2012
This is a great system to get. These systems have been around for awhile and are still fun today. There are many versions of this system like the heavy sixer, Sears heavy sixer, light sixer, Sears light sixer, the 4 switch, the Sears 4 switch, the darth vader black 4 switcher, 2600 jr., and the Coleco gemini. There are also ways to play games for this system on other system like the 5200, 7800, and colecovision. The older ones have a built in rf cable so you will have to have a manual switch-box or something else. Most of the games are very cheap and games like pac-man are dirt cheap. Try to get a system with a lot of games so you do not have to get them seperately and you will pay less for shiping. Besides Atari joysticks and paddles other controllers will work too like the Sega Genesis controller or Colecovision controller. They work well and have many fun games like Pitfall!, Video Olympics, Defender, Missile Comand, Asteroids, Berzerk, Spiderman, Q-bert, Pitfall 2 lost caverns, Pole Postion, and so many more. If you want to relive moments from your childhood or want to experiance your parents joy then buy an Atari 2600 VCS and get ready to travel back to 1977 and later. Have fun!
