4. Playing Classic Console Games > Emulate the Colecovision

Emulate the Colecovision

Get back in touch with a surprisingly powerful classic system.

I’ll admit to being not the biggest fan of retro systems older than myself. It’s not as if I don’t see the fun in the Atari 2600 or Intellivision, and it’s certainly not as if I haven’t spent quite a bit of time playing both systems. But I have this theory that we can only truly go back and enjoy the retro games that we played when they were new.

That said, I never had a Colecovision console when it was new. And I don’t predate it by that many years—I was born in 1980; it was born in 1982. But for someone who came of age during the Nintendo era, the Colecovision experience hits close to home. The graphic quality is close to the early days of the NES, and it even shares some of the same games.
