I'm too young for most of the systems you guys played (Heck, I'm a few years younger than NES), but I do bring some good news: you're not the only generation that can possibly enjoy such old games. Many of them have been re-released in the past few years on systems that mimic the originals. I discovered the simply addictive joy of "Sky Diver" a couple of years ago, and I've loved "Pac Man" and "Space Invaders" since I was a kid playing them (and failing miserably) on old arcade machines. You guys had some great games back then; I can't help but wonder which games from my generation will survive to acheive the same sort of retro-great status (although I can see The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time easily becoming a retro favourite 10, 20 years down the road).

Montezuma's Revenge was my favorite 2600 game.
Hidden levels, keys, traps and useful items. I loved it.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
