The best Atari 2600 games include Pac-Man, Pitfall!, Missile Command, E.T., and Demon Attack.
The Atari was a big reason why video games starting becoming a reality and popular too for that matter.
Here are the best two Atari 2600 emulators we could get our hands on for Linux:
The Atari 2600 is kind of ugly to look at but it was a HUGE part in laying the foundation of modern video games. Ever since the Atari 2600 came out the thumbs of every male 5 years old to 30 years old are stronger than ever but maybe their bellies are a little bigger than they would have been otherwise. Many people will argue that this gaming system started the chain of modern obesity. Say what they will, video games are great for eye-hand coordination, learning to drive, pilot, effectively aim and shoot at targets and so much more.
Albeit that the Atari 2600 was very basic and the console was rather hideous, it really was a great place for the home based video game systems to start and we hope that you will thoroughly enjoy the emulators for this system that we have compiled for you on this site.
