Castelian - NES Gameplay
Tower Toppler for the Atari 7800 (halfway through the video)
The submarine bonus stage in the 7800 version features impressive parallax scrolling. The NES version features a different, stupid, completely unimpressive bonus stage instead. D'oh!

My experience: I lived thru the times and played the atari 2600 to death I remember being bored to tears after a few hours playing brand new games. Every game was just a remake of another successful game. My favorite games for the atari system were Nintendo rip offs like Kangeroo or the Donkey Kong games. Every game developed for the Atari system was 1 level except just a little harder than the last and you only played for points. Even if Atari had come out earlier than Nintendo it would have died with out Japanese support. American programmers were probably the most unimaginative designers at the time. We would have just saw more clones with emphasis on high scores instead ofa ctually beating the game.
I do remember playing Super Mario Bros for the 1st time and it was just so new and different from anything we had seen before. I mean it was amazing at the time and this is the game that pretty much changed everything. I remember getting this game before it was packed into the system. This game had been out for awhile and the 7800 never came out with anything close to it.
WHy are people making a big deal about Desert Falcon? I remember playing this game back in the 80's on the 7800. I liked it for like 5 minutes until I realized every level was the same as the last one. I got all excited to play this one again 3 years ago. It was boring then and it is boring now.
X-Box: Worst game system EVER!

The SNES could do PS3 graphics thankfull for the carts being able to use outside chips like for example ( Dungeon Master, Tales Of Phantasia, Starfox ) so my question is.
Out of all this conception of what is better has anybody considered building a cart that has it's own processor or color upgrade for the darn system.
The NES, SNES, genesis, Master System, Sega Saturn, N64, and PSX all did it why not this system too?
The 7800 can also play past Atari games and the Master System can play Colceo vision games.
If not then the whole feature is doomed?
Then what about the Atari Jaguar is there a upgrade for that to play 7800 games?
I mean Atari was just stone cold when it came to concept gaming and was left with mini games that had no creativity or anything to drive it.
Like Wario for example grew to be even popular then Mario at some point and today is still a way better Mario on the fun scale. Then they released WarioLand Four while being nice it is extremly fun and short compared to the original Wario Land game.
What did Atari had to drive it's games?
From the look of things they just kept on releasing the same exact game over and over again. It is like how Namco keep releasing pac-man or other game like Pac-man but they don't drive.
Take Elevator action became more of a Covert Spy game then just taking the elevator up and down.
Okay I am done sticking up for Atari
