You’ve played janky old Atari 2600 games on your PlayStation before, so the real star of the upcoming Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration is the Atari Jaguar. The reality is, many of you will never have touched the so-called 64-bit system’s calculator controller, so this should prove a real treat for those of you eager to interact with some of the classics from yesteryear.
True story: this author actually owns an Atari Jaguar. Back in the early 2000s, when your humble host was a mere teen, we went on a shopping trip to a nearby mall. The game store there must have discovered some excess inventory of the failed Atari system, because it was flogging the entire console for about £20. Naturally, we grabbed one, along with a couple of games, including DOOM.
