For play on the popular video game console of the 1980s, Atari 7800 games included some of the top names in video games like Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and Mario Bros. all in their 8-bit glory. A total of 59 Atari 7800 console games were released, plus another 14 aftermarket games. Combined with the compatible games from previous Atari video game consoles like the Atari 5200, the Atari 7800 provided hours of joy and entertainment.

The Atari 7800 was a unique console first introduced in May 1984. The video game crash followed and delated the release of the console until January 1986. At that time, other consoles like the Nintendo Entertainment System and the Sega Master System were becoming very popular and the Atari 7800 fit right in.

The Atari 7800 games may pale in comparison to modern games, but now the once-top-of-the-line Atari 7800 console and Atari 7800 games serve as collectors items for retro gamers worldwide.
