The Next Web for Atari

Classic gamers need to run, not walk, to Steam and grab ‘Atari Vault’ — a collection of 100 classic Atari 2600 games featuring Asteroids, Centipede, Pong and over 90 others retro titles.
The Atari 2600 was a breakthrough in modern computing as it stuck your arcades favorite right into your grubby paws and let you blast alien spacecraft to pixelated bits. The system dropped in the late 70s but powered through to the early 80s and served as a sort of proof-of-concept for Nintendo’s uber-popular NES.
