ATARI 2600 MEETS CONCEPT MUSIC VIDEO (opens in new window/tab)

4 Feedbacks »
  1. The 2600 version of Pac-Man was particularly bad. I never had an Atari, but my best friend did, and we could never figure out ET. I’ve been a big fan of Keith’s work for a while, and this video is no disappointment.

    I’m still not sure how they got their hands on all those cartridges. Did they really go find them in that landfill?

  2. I’d bet they were props; probably had only one real cartridge.

    You should have visited me while I was still down there. I had my vintage, woodgrain-finished 2600 with me, with about 30 cartridges. No E.T., though, never bought that. And I was one of the many pissed-off kids who bought Pac-Man; to add insult to injury, the damn thing broke, one of the few cartridges I had that ever did so.

  3. Ahh. I get my 2600 (and other old-school) kicks on the emulators on my Xbox. Though certainly not having the proper joystick takes out some of the fun.

  4. I’ve got that disc too, along with plenty of other oldschool games. In fact, think I’ll fire up the Xbox now.

    But I think it’s neat just to still have that old Atari clunker, with joysticks and paddles, and be amazed that it still works.
