The Red-Headed Stepchild of the Atari Clan

The Atari 5200 is probably the least loved of the Atari machines. The fundamental problem is that the system used analog joysticks but was loaded with games made for and sold to audiences used to digital sticks. Play Pac-Man or Q*bert on one of these and you'll see the weakness.

On the other hand, Missile Command or Centipede are joyous- especially with the trak-ball.

This is supposed to be all the Atari 5200 cartridges (and then a couple). The ones I have are marked with an `x' in the first column. The original list is, as always from Dean Dierschow.
