Last year for a class project, my nephew(10) did the History of the Video Game Console. Well, actually my brother and I did the work, hehe. Anyway as I talked to a co-worker about the project, she told me she had an old console that still worked. I was floored when she brought it in the next week and gave me several cartridges, and a Magnavox Odyssey 2 console.
Talk about memories. The graphics reminded me of my Atari 2600 clone marketed by Sears. We did not have a lot of games, Pacman and yes, the infamous ET, that helped spawn the Video Game crash of 1982.
