Rest in Bits: Atari

In the end, Atari was its own worst enemy. Various managers over the years bled their core markets dry and failed to respond quickly to market changes where they were once at the forefront of the industry. To think they once had the chance to be the distributor of the NES…

Not that they couldn’t still innovate with great hardware but both the Jaguar console and Falcon computer were very much reactionary machines in the age of Sega/Nintendo and PCs (thanks to VGA graphics and Adlib/Soundblaster).

Regardless of that, I still have plenty of fond memories of Atari. And I’m not the only one who feels the nostalgia so I suppose they must have done something right in the end.
