4. Playing Classic Console Games > Emulate the Atari 2600

Emulate the Atari 2600

Bring Stella back to life using only your computer.

It’s no stretch to imagine that the very reason you bought this book was to read this very hack. Even those of us who were born after the Atari 2600 (or Video Computer System, if you’re a purist) know what it is and what it signified for the video game industry. (And if you don’t, you can go read up on its history [Hack #3] .)

In addition to buying a classic system and games, there are many other ways you can get your old-school Atari fix these days. You can buy an all-in-one device that plugs into your TV [Hack #15] or buy a collection of classic games for your PlayStation 2 or Xbox hardware [Hack #16] .
