Atari ST Computer Games that Rocked the Hardware Vol 1
In this series we will explore all of the games that we feel kickee butt on the Atari ST and STE series of computers.
Each game is given a small amount of time to make its case (about 30 seconds). Each video will cover about 25 – 30 games. Contrary to the belief of some gaming fans, there are A LOT of great arcade style games that have been produced for the Atari 16 bit computers from 1985 until 2020 (and beyond). This is an ongoing series that will pay homage to the best titles on the system a few at a time to keep the videos around 15 minutes each.
*Note these videos are not intended to say these games were better on the ST then on your favorite system of choice (some were of course =) or are exclusives) but to demonstrate the great games that did come out for the ST machines that are mostly overlooked today. So yes, these videos are being produced with a chip firm planted on this Atari Fan boy’s shoulder.
