Paul Conroy's "Top 5 Atari 2600 Games"

There are many people out there who don't currently play video games, but few who haven't at one point. While Paul Conroy (talent manager for athletes and musicians) has been obsessed with (and owned every version of) the Madden Football series dating back to it's beginnings on the Sega Genesis, he hasn't picked up any other video game in over 20 years. However, the impact the great games of the Atari 2600 made on him at an early age will forever be ingrained in his brain. We can all only hope that while he is staging hostile takeovers and negotiating huge contracts for athletes and musicians he views himself as Pitfall Harry jumping on the competitions heads and forging new ground for success.

We tip our hats to you PC, we always knew you had an 8-bit darkside!
#5 Basketball
One on one full court was no joke. Serious workout. The true baller could make a full court basket that bounced once before going through the net.

#4 Adventure
That Red Dragon was a son of a bitch to shank with the sword. He'd just eat your ass and then the game would just show you dead in the dragon's stomach. This was the first display of graphic video game violence.

#3 Combat
Fucking tanks n shit. Brutal!

#2 Pitfall
Pitfall Harry was a pretty bad motherfucker. Dude would jump on crocodile's heads to get across ponds. That's pretty hard!

#1 Space Invaders
This is number one because I am the all time world champion in Atari 2600 Space Invaders. No one could beat me.
