Solaris, an absolutely incredible evolution of Star Raiders that pushes the 2600 more than anyone would have ever thought possible.

Combat has to be one of the best multi player games I've ever played.

Pressure Cooker - another Activision masterpiece - played it for the first time on the Retro League a few seasons back, so addictive, and quite pretty too.

One word: Centipede.

It was the first game I ever played in my life. I was 6, I had black and white tv, and a joystick in front of me in the livingroom. Good Times for a 6 year old

Combat, the bi-planes in particular: killing my brother with a shot whilst hidden in the clouds never got old.
