I used my old Atari 800 through junior high, high school as well as college. But the majority of gaming on it was in the junior high time, with several friends who also had Ataris. Even back then, I wasn't into Apple products.

Here's a list of some of the awesome games that we played.

Not an Apple fanboy, even back then.

Yep. This old computer got me through a lot of schooling (and quite a bit of gaming. I can't believe that it came out in 1979!

Multiplayer with a split screen. Top and bottom, not side to side.

Another fun one with a great soundtrack. At least at the intro.

The darn wizard was a pain in the keister. Not as fun as the original.

Not for this game. This is for those games not yet in the database that I simply don't have time to add.

Zeppelin
Zombies

Both were great multiplayer games with different themes.
