It's the most wonderful time of the year! And my vain attempts to procure a Nintendo Classic this year have drawn my mind back to the days of being a kid in the '80s, and feeling my mouth water with all the Christmastime commercials for all the latest video game products...meaning Atari. It's easy to forget now in the age of XBox and whatever new console Nintendo is promoting, but there was a time when having an Atari 2600 was it. The promised land. You'd be the envy of everyone on your block, even when the system had a roster of games that was pretty embarrassing even back then. Ah, simpler times. Anyway, in honor of the day, here's a collection of just some of those TV spots...
One Year Ago in Nostalgia Theater: User Are Losers!
Two Year Ago in Nostalgia Theater: The Hogan Family
Three Years Ago in Nostalgia Theater: Revealing The Secret Lives of Waldo Kitty
Four Years Ago in Nostalgia Theater: When Chicago Enters the Summer Zone...
