1. Playing Retro Games > Buy and Run Later Classic Consoles

Buy and Run Later Classic Consoles

Get your hands on some underappreciated classics.

I’ll be frank. I’m not much of an Atari 2600 fan [Hack #3] . Not that I don’t enjoy a good game of E.T. every now and again, but my personal retro gaming tastes run a bit more eclectic. And hey, why restrict yourself to the VCS when there are plenty of other consoles out there for around the same price? Put in a couple hundred bucks and you could amass ten thousand 1981 dollars’ worth of electronics; the fever-dream of every bellbottomed schoolboy.

Tip

Many of the tips and pointers in the preceding hack [Hack #3] will apply to the purchase and setup of most of the consoles mentioned in this one, so I’m going to concentrate on the things that differ—non-standard accessories, unique pitfalls, etc.
