I grew up with Atari computers.
First we had an Atari 400. Then an 800XL. Then a 130XE. Then a 520ST. And finally a 520STE, upgraded to a mighty 1MB of RAM. I loved every one of them.
Atari is in my blood.
This site and its accompanying video series is my attempt to revisit some childhood memories — as well as catalogue some of these pieces of software that will one day be lost in the mists of time.
My name is Pete Davison. I grew up writing about Atari games and software for Page 6 Magazine (later New Atari User) alongside my brother and father. Subsequently I contributed to PC Zone and the UK’s Official Nintendo Magazine, and was a regular staffer on GamePro and USgamer.
I also run another site called MoeGamer, dedicated to Japanese video games and visual novels. Stop by and check it out!
