Let the wood-paneled fun begin!



For September's list, we're going back to one of the earliest consoles released, the Atari 2600. The 2600 had a vast library of games, arguably too vast, as a lack of quality control at least contributed to the video game crash of the early 80's.

But that also causes some great games of the era to be overlooked. Hope you'll join us in deciding what the best games from Atari's iconic system were.

Participants:

Want some thoughts on some of the best games for other systems? Check out what games were discussed in our previous lists:

Sega Saturn/TurboGrafx 16: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=19360.0
Playstation: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=19335.0
Game Boy: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=19318.0
N64: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=19297.0
Sega Genesis: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=19279.0
Super NES: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=19263.0
NES: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=19248.0

For those new to the lists, happy to have you by the way, a quick rundown on how to participate:

1. Make an ordered list of whatever games are your favorites for the system being covered that month.

-Make your list about what games you think are the best that system has to offer, NOT necessarily the most important. (For example, Super Mario Bros. is one of the most influential games in VG history, but not many would call it a better game than SMB3)

-Also, your list needs to be limited to games you have personally played. Don't include a game just because you've heard it's good, include a game because you know it's good.

-For a few of the games, try to include a few thoughts on why that particular game made your list. That way, those not as familiar with the game can see why it's one they should put on their radar.

2. Personal Message EZ Racer with your ordered list.

Just put "Top 20 games for the (whatever system we're covering that month)" in the subject line. Throughout the month, I will be compiling the results, and release a full list based on votes sent in. I will be putting extra weight on games voted for the top of the lists, so please make sure that your games are listed in numeric order. The reasoning behind a private vote is so that each member's vote can be their own, not influenced by what they think others would want.

The voting cutoff each month will be the last day of the month at 11:59 EST.

Please stick to NA and PAL releases, later in the year we'll do some lists for Japan exclusives.

Looking forward to seeing everyone's thoughts on one of the earliest home consoles!

Oh man, this might be a tough one. I can probably do the top 10 off the top of my head, but the rest I'll have to really think about.

I know there's plenty of collectors on the site who like the 2600. Really could use some extra participation to make this list a good one.
