Welcome to the Jungle

Atari 2600 console 6-switch

In my post from yesterday, I mentioned how I have been reliving some Atari 2600 experiences with the “help” of my daughter. I have “enquothed” (if Colbert can make up words, then so can I) the word help, because while I was attempting to sort and organize my many games in order of importance, my daughter decided it was more fun to make a mountain out of them. After a while, I simply had to give up, completely forgetting about such things as order and rule. It’s just one of the many laws one has to live by while residing in the land of the toddlers.

She did, however, take a break from the destruction of my Atari catalogue to play a bit of Jungle Hunt:

That’s a good girl…

About the author


Discovered as a young 'Squatchling in a Pacific Northwest woodland area in the mid-70's, Fatsquatch was soon domesticated and introduced to the fledgling arcade scene, where he became addicted to the magical sights and sounds of gaming. As years passed, his addiction only worsened, and eventually lead to his desire to write about all things gaming from a veteran point-of-view. Hence, Fatsquatch created The Jaded Gamer in 2001, and set about leading it into permanent obscurity.
