I will take time out of my day to print and mail out math worksheets. You can sit inside safe from any shark attack.

Pretty sure the theme is "launch titles" and not "Atari launch titles." :lol: :lol: :lol:

Even I do not possess a copy of Basic Math.

I could probably use some math worksheets anyway. I'm just getting dumber as I age, some math might sharpen me up.

Anyway, I voted Back to School and Ready to Launch.

Ready To Launch wins it, kids. I'll be honest... I thought that one would come in last. Ha!

This gives us a couple of weeks to decide what we'll be playing.

You love to see it.

Here are some ideas I'm tossing around (sticking to North American launch titles, as I am North American).

Atari 2600
Air-Sea Battle
Combat
Street Racer

Intellivision
Armor Battle

ColecoVision
Cosmic Avenger

NES
Gyromite
Ice Climber
Super Mario Bros.
Wrecking Crew

games I'm considering (that I already own)...

NES

Clu Clu Land
Pinball
Super Mario Bros

Genesis

Space Harrier II
Altered Beast
Alex Kid Enchanted Castle

But more than likely, I'll focus on two old favorites:

Super Mario Land (GB)
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 (GBA)

Super Mario Land is so good. One of the best launch games out there.

These days, you see all the love for Super Mario Land 2, but I have no nostalgia for that game. I had Super Mario Land as a youngster, so that's what I played. It's inferior in almost every way to 2, but I'll always like it more.

same here. I didn't play SML2 until like 2009 or so, and when I did I was like "yeah, this is impressive. This is good." But I still revisit SML1 more often and have way more love for the original myself.

Same here, I didn't play 2 until more recently. Also, I didn't have many GB games when I was young. So the few that I did have I played a fuck ton of.
