A History of Gaming Excellence
The name Atari derives from a board game known as Go, and the Japanese word ataru, which means “to hit a target” is also associated with good fortune. An American-founded corporation, which was founded in 1972, it gained widespread success with their game consoles up until the mid 1980s.
Popular consoles included the Video Computer System (VCS), also known as the 2600 with its infamous joystick which sold millions around the world – this was the console that gave Pac-Man its status as a best-seller back in the day. Other popular games in their repertoire included Space Invaders, Asteroids, Combat and Ultra Pong to name just a few.
