I had to look this up: the Atari 2600, released in 1977 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atari_2600 - great game system! Pitfall released in 1982 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pitfall! over 4 million copies sold!

PS I was never that good at Pitfall ... I did play some Asteroids.

TS: I'm also a fan of Donkey Kong and Popeye. I just found the site yesterday. I've been there all day. I have that little going on...

Jim: Asteroids was cool, but I liked the home version better. I sucked at pitfall too, but I like playing it.

I loved this game.... But I don't remember ever beating it? Was it possible to beat Pitfall? Did it go on forever?

My mother took a picture of me in front of the TV screen, with Pitfall in the background, I must have had some good score, and we were going to send it in to . . . I have no idea. This was on the Intellivision format, we didn't have an Atari. I still have the photo, with me in a ruffled early 80's blouse, lol.
