How is the VCS? Do you like it?

Yes I do: just another addition to my collection.

I’ve always wanted to play Atari and it turns out the digital games on the Store are dirt-cheap, especially the 2600 and 7800 game ports.

Now I just need to get some older systems later.

I was confused for a minute. Pretty sure some called the old 2600 a VCS. I could not figure out how you connected an old school console to a modern TV...and had it look good.

I have my old 2600 and the crt TV I used to play on. Both work great the last time I used them.

I’ve done it. It’s perfect playable. And all you need is a cheap RCA to coaxial adapter.

The better solution is to buy an up-scaler though. They range from reasonably priced to outrageously so.

Berserk is a favorite of mine! I don’t have a VCS but I wouldn’t mind one…

Nice! I have a friend with an original Berzerk standup.
