Atari 2600 joins the toy hall of fame

Did you hear the recent news about the Atari 2600? It was just inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame in recognition of what it did to make electronic gaming popular. It's a long time coming, but I'm happy the system got recognized for this success.

Is this the first videogame console to make it into the Toy Hall of Fame?

That should have happened a long time ago considering it was one of the biggest reasons gaming became so popular back then. It started the craze and if you look around today, videogames are not going anywhere for a while. :)


Trust me, I'm The Doctor.
If the 2600 makes it, then the NES should make it.
