About Woodgrain Wonderland

Woodgrain Wonderland is a look back at the Atari 2600 and its pivotal role in video game history. I started this out of a concern that this venerable console — and by extension the entire first and second generation of programmable video game consoles (including Intellivision, Colecovision and the Odyssey 2) — was falling out of favour among a classic gaming community focused on the NES onwards. It’s my position that the best Atari 2600 games are still fun today, and I want to make sure you know about them. There will be lots of features and reviews, with the centerpiece being my attempt to review every single commercially-released Atari 2600 game plus every homebrew I can get my hands on.
