Friend of the Blog 2 — Atari Archive by Kevin Bunch

Kevin Bunch is perhaps the world’s foremost historian of the Atari VCS–also known as the Atari 2600–and other 1970s home video game consoles. Since 2017, Bunch has produced Atari Archive, a series of videos available on YouTube that document the history of every VCS game in release order. More recently, Bunch authored the first in a series of books based on his video series, Atari Archive Vol. 1: 1977-1978 (Press Run, $34.99), which chronicles the first 20 games released for the system and provides additional information on Atari’s competitors during this time period, including Fairchild Semiconductor, Magnavox, and RCA.
