Last week, we traveled to Florida on business. During our layover in Dallas, we grabbed a quick bite to eat at T.G.I. Friday's. Mounted on the wall above our table was an old Atari 2600 game console. What really cracked me up was the switch for choosing your TV type - color or black and white. Wow, did I ever feel old!

The Adventure game cartridge came out in 1979 and was considered the first action adventure game. It also introduced the first widely known Easter egg to the gaming world. I can't remember if I ever played this game or not.

I remember b&w TVs. The Atari not so much. I'm old, so old my kids were almost all out of the house by the time it came out.
