My cousins (who gave it to grandma where i played it) had an Atari 5200. They had the 3rd party controllers (where the joystick was separate from the keypad). Never really seemed to be any problems with the system (other than what you'd expect from a console in those days). I saw a 2600 years after playing many games on the 5200 and remember thinking "meh, that looks kinda boring/outdated". Most of the "hate" against the 5200 I tend to disagree with... Guess it depends on what you grow up with.

Nobody's gonna believe that computers are intelligent until they start coming in late and lying about it.
