The Atari 2600 was made on October 14, 1977 and was one of the best consoles in video game history (for its time). It received an award for the 2nd greatest video game console of all time. It is even in the National Toy Hall of Fame in Rochester, New York. The game Combat was one of the games that helped build the Atari 2600 to its glory today. Another game that helped build the Atari 2600 was Pac-Man (which we still know today).
