Atari is a company which made the conosles Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Atari 7800 and many more consoles. Theres games were good some games like Texas Chainsaw Massacre was a game which was hidden behind store counters because it was so violence. Now the console was big but not as big as the Atari 5200 and that was big I mean big it had this thing up the top which was a flap thing I think its used for putting the Atari 5200 games in or beer in. Now back to the Atari 2600 the console its self had the buttons on which I think don't do much so I think there no use it had a hole to put the games in the machine. The game controller was a joystick like shown above it had a bout on the side for firing or jumping in any game. It was made of wood front side like shown above. This console was voted one of the best consoles by IGN.
