Mattel Intellivision... Primarily early 1980's game console... A BLAST.........

The baseball game was incredible...... VERY realistic for the time. I worked at a large department store chain then, Jordan Marsh, which later became Macy's, unfortunately.

Whenever it was a slow business day, a fellow worker and I would meet up in the TV department where it was set up. We played hundreds of hours up there. Lunchtime, our breaks... It reached a point where, honestly, no one could beat me, even the teenagers.... that was cool, the old guy in his thirties beating the kids.

The salesmen in that department loved it when we were there, as we helped them sell many of those consoles.

I just found this website.... can play it on the PC now.... Oh Lord.....

Oh geez, I remember those arcades in the Mall... the '80's again...

A variation of that same machine, the one in our mall had that football game where you were in control of only 2 or 3 players... Some kids were so good at that, I hate to think how much of their school lunch money went into those machines...

The good ones die first, because they are right there at the front.
