I sort of feel like we are all family after having listened to the podcast for so long now.
I've been a fan of Ferg and his followers & contributors since nearly the beginning. My Atari memories stretch back to the early 80's right after the 2600 came out. I didn't have one myself at first, but my next door neighbor did. Imagine being able to play video games without having to drop a quarter on each play! Eventually my parents purchased a 2600 and I was able to enjoy it for several years, until I received my first Commodore 64. At that point the graphics of the Atari were sooo last year, ha ha. My mom seeing that I had lost interest, sold my Atari to a friend of hers, but I was able to hold onto three of my favorite cartridges which at the time were Adventure, Missile Command and Mountain king, all of which are still in my possession. Fast forwarding to about the time the Atari 2600 Game by Game podcast came out, I had a renewed interest in the Atari and retro gaming. There is something to be said about the simplicity of being able to pick up and play a complete game in just a few minutes rather than several hours which are required on todays modern consoles...
Please keep up the great work Ferg on the wonderful podcast and thanks for creating this forum!
