Welcome to All Things Atari!

By Kevin Gottschalk

Atari was one of the very first video game consoles ever created, and perhaps the most revolutionary and influential of any video game console in history. This blog will give a detailed account of why Atari and its video games were so successful, and how the creator of Atari, Nolan Bushnell, found a new way for people to play video games that no other entrepreneur in the video game industry had managed to find.
