To this day, I have nightmares about burnt sienna squares.

I remember being terrified by Evil Otto, that slow moving rectangle in Yars Revenge, that low flying beam cannon in Atlantis, and the narrow channels in River Raid.

The first video game thing to give me a real fright were those three-eyed alien things in "Rescue on Fractalus" but that was mainly because the instructions deliberately didn't mention them.

You land to pick up some stranded astronauts and suddenly this big green fucker is screaming and pounding on the window.

I have nightmares about lower case letter ds when I play too much Dwarf Fortress.

Sorry, the REAL old school game feature of dread was playing some C64 game to suddenly have the disk drive fire up and start belching noise. You knew shit was going DOWN.

cool water sandwich
this is really really bad, just like all Atari games

This shit was state-of-the-art in my day.

"OH MY GOD! THE EYES LOOK IN THE DIRECTION YOU'RE MOVING! HOLY SHIT! HOW DID THEY DO THAT?"

We were easy to please back then.

Also, this game was hard as Hell, well beyond what has come to be known as "Nintendo hard".

There's an updated version which is a cute little time killer:

But when the light is on, there is no body. So you were literally playing as a pair of floating eyeballs.

I unironically like this game in a non-hipster kind of way. In fact, it is one of my favorite 2600 carts. The root of all of its faults is that the concept was a bit too far ahead for its time (it's essentially the late 90's survival horror concept on 2600 limitations).

Astute. Hours and hours of this, 'Riddle of the Sphinx', and 'Asteroids'. Unironic like.

Toenails
*flips on and off the light switch*

FUCK YEAH I WON!!!

Silent Hill this ain't.

I have no idea what's going on in this game aside from a ghost who just encountered Pac-Man going up and down stairs a lot. So, typical Atari 2600.
That guy
I had this as a kid, and I barely remember it, it was so dull.

The box cover made me spend my allowance on it, I'm sure.
