It's National Video Game Day, and as a little Captain Jack they were definitely my "Escape."

The Atari 2600 changed my life and altered my outside playtime slightly. It's funny to compare the games of today, and wonder how I thought those graphics were "so awesome."

You had your classic Atari 2600 titles back in the day:

  • Frogger
  • Asteroids
  • PacMan
  • Pitfall
  • Pole Position
  • Space Invaders
  • Donkey Kong

But what about my favorite, "Journey Escape." Who would have guess years and years later that THIS would be such a huge part of my life! This game was way ahead of its time. "Journey Escape" had the music of Journey (sort of) and a band running away from crazy groupies and money hungry promoters. Some things never change!

Happy National Video Game Day, here is a review of my favorite game.
