My video game roots turn 30

This was my very first video game system, and it turned 30 this month! Wow...does that mean I bought this system in its 9th or 10th year since its release?? That would be unthinkable today!

I didn't have much games to play with this system, but the ones I played weren't bad at all -
Missile Command, Q-Bert, Vanguard, Combat...but the one I remember most was Pac-Man. And I'm embarrassed to say that I thought there was an actual end to the game, leaving me to play for countless hours on end. Deception, thou art thy name...

Happy 30th, Atari 2600. Without you, I wouldn't have gotten Gameritis.
