Trifextra 34 – Game On!

This weekend’s challenge is:
Describe something that is three different things at the same time.  Oh, and do it in 33 words.  Structure your response however you want; it doesn’t have to mirror Mr. Gaiman’s form.  Feel free to leave us guessing.  Just make it your own, and make it good.

The Atari Game System:

It was a state of the art gaming experience.
Then it was obsolete, not fit for a landfill in Mexico.
Now it’s ‘old skool’, still fun and PC compatible!

I still have my collection in a closet (I dug it out of storage a few years ago. No I haven’t hooked it up to a big screen TV. Yes, ET is there. Joysticks are broken, paddles are ok. Manuals are crisp and new.


Will put it on eBay soon. Unless you’re makin’ an offer 😉

Now they all fit here.

On 2 CD’s we have 155 games between them,
with manuals, commercials, prototypes games and even mp3s.
Sure looks like it takes up less space!
