Below is an incomplete list of Atari 2600 video game release dates by month in the USA for the year 1984 along with lists of top 40 music, movies, and TV shows to help summon your treasured memories of the Atari 2600 and the 1980s with the bonus of recreating the magical feelings of that special time.

 

If you were too young or not even born yet, play the songs in the order they are listed and watch short video clips or commercials for the movies and TV shows (in order) and you might start to feel what it was like back then in 1984. There were no smartphones or an Internet full of knowledge and entertainment at your fingertips. If you wanted to know something, you had to go to the library and try to find the information in a book. If you were lucky, you had an encyclopedia set at home, but it would probably be many decades out of date.

Quick List and Index

For those who only want release dates and nothing else, there is a Release Date Quick List. This page also has an Index.

 

 

Not Set in Stone

Most of the release dates below are not set in stone. Games will be moved as better information is found, so be sure to check back once in a while.

 

 

Best Guess

Many games are marked as a best guess. Some guesses are worse than others. Below is a list of the types of guesses that can be on this page.

 

Best Guess (BG): At least one magazine or newsletter mentioned the month a game was released or supposed to be released.

 

Extreme Best Guess (EBG): A vague mention of the release month in a magazine or newsletter.

 

Super Extreme Best Guess (SEBG): The Video Game Update newsletter only had a review for the game (no release month mentioned), so it’s a semi-educated wild guess. The review could have happened the same month the game was released or the review could have been published a month or more later.

 

Desperate Super Extreme Best Guess (DSEBG): There might be an ad in a magazine to go on if we’re lucky. It’s a desperate semi-educated wild guess.

 

 

Copyright Date

Remember, the date on the box, cartridge, manual, and copyright screen can be different from the actual release date. For example, Atari 2600 Pac-Man was released in March/April of 1982, but the box, cart, manual, and copyright screen have 1981 as the copyright date. It usually took around 6 months for a programmer to make an Atari VCS game back then and that’s not counting the time it took to make the manuals, boxes, and cartridges.

 

 

YouTube

To help make your experience even more enjoyable, most items have a link next to them that will lead you to related search results at YouTube where you might find video game commercials, gameplay footage, music videos, and clips from TV shows or movies.

    CHANGES

    For our readers who want to know “what’s happened to...”, here’s an update on various games. The board games (e.g. RISK, CHESS, and MONOPOLY) are still in development and have been bumped to the second half of ‘84. Meanwhile, JAMES BOND 007 has “gone back to the drawing board” as they want to expand the interest beyond that of the originally planned tie-in with the recent Bond film, Octupussy. Parker Bros, plans scenes from several Bond films. Don’t look for that title until at least the second quarter of the year.

    GYRUSS DEBUTS FROM PARKER BROS

    Parker Bros, debuted their home translation of GYRUSS, the hit arcade game. Although not all formats were completed and ready to show, what we did see looked like Parker Bros, may have another hit on their hands! They plan versions for 2600, 5200, ColecoVision, C64, and Atari computers. Meanwhile, they worked faster than expected on the brand new version of JAMES BOND 007 and will start shipping in various formats as soon as this month! The tie-in with Octopussy is totally gone. Segments included in this new version include “The Spy Who Loved Me”, “For Your Eyes Only”, “Moonraker”, “Diamonds Are Forever”, and “Live and Let Die”. Only after the player has successfully negotiated all five adventures can he be awarded the opportunity of attaining the 007 rating. In order to inherit the Bond number, players must decode a diabolical puzzle designed by Dr. No to test the intuitive skills of Bond.

By the way, RIVER PATROL is now planned to only be available for the 2600.”
