Title: Freaking some people out.

Does anybody have an Atari 2600?

Well, searchin' around gamefaqs I was able to find about ten secret social boards that have been highjacked from their original Atari 2600 games. I thought, wouldn't it freak them out to find a review of one of these games all of a sudden, or even, a FAQ, boxart, game saves... you get the picture. Pretty soon, we'll just send drones in there asking about the game, how to beat a boss, etc.

Anyway, here are a few games if anybody's interested.

Robot Commando Raid
Drive 'em Crazy
Street Racer

I used to have a 2600 long, long ago. I think it sprouted wings and flew away, since I haven't seen it in, oh, a decade.

Five of them in fact.
Last year I was walking down the street and passed a house where someone was being evicted. I happened to find three different models of the Atari 2600, a mess of controllers, and a few dozen games. Then my parents and a friend surprised me with even more systems and games.

Pup, you make it sound like you just waltzed away with their stuff because they weren't watching it.

I remember when the Cotton board on 'FAQs was hijacked and used as a religious board. There were plots afoot to start talking about the game on that but the religious folk moved on before it could happen.

This is not a very interesting story.

What's wrong with that?

I'm sure it was garbage... pretty sure at least.

Well, besides looking at it in a one-man's-trash-is-another-man's-garabge sort of way, it's theft. But Pup's innocent actions should be viewed as robbing the rich (or in this case homeless) to give gaming to the poor (or in this case Pup). If this story isn't true, it ought to be.
