Ok, Let's See 'Em.
« on: December 06, 2007, 03:30:02 PM »

I think someone started a thread like this last year.  Probably Claven. Roll Eyes

Favorite, or most memorable toy.  I've posted a few of mine as avatars.

I had a Big Trak,  (actually never got a Mattel football  Angry )  Had a Starbird.  I also had 2 of those chopper dealies that gleek has in his avatar.




Neat stuff.

[Edit:]  I tried to search for spacey's bag of glass.  Bag of ass is funnier.

Hmm, on second thought, maybe the original Lego castle.  The yellow one.

If I gotta pick one, simply for the hours occupying me...







Starbird was cool too, but this was better:






And too many cannibalized Lego sets all tossed into one big box to list.

I've gone to find myself.  If I get back before I return, keep me here.

Although the Vertibird is one of the most memorable toys that I received for Xmas, it lasted only a few minutes before my dog attacked and killed it.  Sad

Since UB already mentioned the Atari 2600, I have to go with this one:

The kid down the street from me had one of those.  ^

Another friend had Intellivision.



Colecovision had the best DonkeyKong evar!  But I remember Intellevision Football kicked ass.

Colecovison Donkey Kong was awesome! I still remember the trick for getting Mario to climb the ladders faster.

I got an Atari 2600 for Christmas a couple of years ago...not as fun I remember it being.  The football and baseball are horribly boring, though I remember play them for hours as kid.  Now it just sits collecting dust, I should probably put it on E-Bay and rid of it.

I could never get past the first few screens. I was teh sukk.  Never made it to the conveyors with the pies.

But I remember like yesterday, when I first saw it.  It was indescribable.  It was the arcade version.  I could only think, no more quarters!  And, I don't live here, so I can't play it as much as I want.  Sad

I think the enjoyment of Atari came more from the competition than the actual gameplay. There was no greater enjoyment then burning my brother for a long pass play when he selected a run-defense formation. Or, I should say "THE" run-defense formation. IIRC, there were only two plays to choose from. LOL

We had Pong before the Atari 2600. I loved the 2600!




Vertibird was cool as well.
