So what is the allure of Donkey Kong?

February 25, 2012

It was Christmas of 1982 when my brother and I got an Atari 2600 for Christmas. At age 6, my brother wasn't too adept at video games. And at age 10, I wasn't too much either. The only game I?really somewhat excelled at was Pitfall. I got through the 20 minutes time period unscathed once or twice. I?thought I did decent for someone who really didn't play a whole heckuva lot. Other games I?liked that we had were bowling (the only way I?ever got a perfect score in the sport), pinball and the Olympics. Nothing like listening to a tinny rendition of the Olympics theme song to kick off your Atari version of the Summer Games.
