The Lyrics

The old Atari system games were cool in the '70s, but looking at the combat of today those old kills seemed way too easy!

(Atari console)
(Simple controls)
(Gaming rules!)

(Off to other worlds)
(Asteriods, missiles hurled)
(Laser turmoil)

Come on, come on, turn Defender on
My laser cannons are going quite strong
Yar's Revenge, Qotile did them wrong
Penetrate shield and it won't be long-
fire the Zorlon Cannon!

It was so easy to score
Laughing, rolling on the floor
Achieve, succeed
Games were a blast
Unless they crashed
But I killed easily (was a breeze)

Definitely don't need trip to the mall to have fun tonight
(I make cheap kills)
Asteroids, Missile Command, tough fights
(I love cheap kills)
Space Invaders funny (slowly descending as I kill them cold)
They're not hard to beat (got it all under control)
Asteroids are coming (watch as photon torpedoes explode)
As long as I keep playing (Atari is never dull or grows old)



(ABMs flew)
(Zardon spree)
(Destroy the Krytolian enemy, because)
(Can't allow them to succeed)
(Things look bleak, but then up come the streaks)
(Gonna take it up a notch to save the world)
(Take aim, guide the rockets)
(Corrections, interceptions, FWIW)


La, la, la, laser strikes
(I love cheap kills)
UFOs, space creatures, satellites
(I love cheap kills)
La, la, la, laser strikes
(I love cheap kills)
Ground and space fights
(I love cheap kills)

I wonder if TCOP is old enough to remember the Atari 2600 and it's games?

Or the fact that you could buy Atari comics as well as catalogs!

Good news, the Atari Comics are coming back for reprint through Dynamite Comics. Atari Force, Swordquest, Asteroids, Space Invaders, Yars' Revenger, and more. There's even talk of an Atari Force movie in the works!
