Watch the “Stella at 20” Atari 2600 Retrospective (1-3 hours)

Task: Watch the “Stella at 20” Atari 2600 Retrospective

Needed: Web Browser

Time: 1-3 hours (or more)


The Atari 2600 was launched in 1977 and enjoyed many years of success. For its 20th anniversary in 1997, a group of former Atari employees got together to talk about the good ole days. Fortunately, this was filmed and is available on for viewing.


Navigate to the Internet Archive. All the uncut footage is available there.

You can also find some of the videos on YouTube.

There are many hours of video here but you can probably get a flavor of the content in an hour.


I had never seen these videos before and have enjoyed watching them. I am surprised they aren’t mentioned more often. Enjoy!
