"Don't watch TV tonight. Play it!" - 1978 Atari Advertisement

Even though the corporation has morphed many times from what it once was, when we see the friendly Atari logo on packaging today, it still fills us with nostalgia for a simpler time. A time when woodgrain was cool. A time when televisions didn't have remotes. A time when there were no 3-button combos, because there was only one button.
