Good old Decathalon for the Atari 2600. This is one of those games that you keep playing and playing, because you get just a tiny bit better every time you play. All 10 events are represented, (event list in node above). At its heart Decathalon for the Atari is just about timing your presses on that red button. But it seems like so much more. This is a great multiplayer game, (for up to 4 players).

You could get a patch from Activision if you got a score of 8,600 points. 10,000 points would get you a Gold Medal patch.
