Atari, 1980

This game alone started it all for me. It was originaly given to my best friend ,Wade, back in 1997 for FREE!! We played the crap out of it for a few hours then the power supply died, also killing the main PCB. Three weeks later and $200 less, we were back in business. I paid for the repairs, so it became mine now. Well sometime last year when I moved into my new house, the first time I played it at home it crashed on my making only beeping sounds and a blank screen. This is the sign of bad RAM. I finally got around to buying new ram and sockets but I havent had the time or motivation to get it done. So till then, it stays in the computer room covered in a mexican blanket, nice and dry and protected from the elements.
