A Blast From The Past…

The first video game system I bought was the amazing (at the time) Atari 5200.  I just found one of the control pad overlays for the game STAR RAIDERS. Anyone else remember this?

 

 

Here is what the controllers looked like…

These controllers had tiny “fire” buttons that wore out quickly. Kind of a bummer because afterwards the only game I could play that didn’t use the fire buttons was Pac Man.

Still, the system will always hold a place in my gamers heart.
