Atari 2600 covers

Here are a bunch of classic Atari 2600 games, only with titles that actually match the cover art. Man, this stuff was great.(h/t Monkeys for Helping)

Oh man... I had so many of those.

Everyone called them "tapes" at first, before "cartridges" came into use. Presumably because they looked like 8-tracks.

I actually had Atari VCS/2600 tapes!

I had this "Supercharger" thing where that you plugged into the cartridge slot and it...forced more air into the intake manifold?

Anyway, you loaded the games with a tape player. Escape from the Mindmaster was teh awesome, and Communist Mutants from Space only marginally less so.
