It was great being a kid and growing up in the 1970's and early 1980's. I remember getting my first video game, “Pong” (You connected the unit to your TV). It was just two paddles and a ball moving across the screen. Although nothing spectacular today, it was revolutionary at the time, and a lot of fun. It was a great time to grow up! I remember how happy I was when my father bought me an Atari video game system. I shoveled snow, raked leaves and worked hard to buy the video games, one by one from Toys R' Us and other stores I accumulated several dozens of them. Anytime I went with my parents to a big department store, I looked for the Atari games. It was a great thing! Kids today are missing out on so much that we had in the 1970s!
I remember when the console units for Space Invaders came out, then Galaxian and Pacman. You stood up while playing them, or sat down with a coaster and a drink for the tabletop video game units. When I was young, pinball machines were everywhere, and video games hadn't been invented yet. I loved playing pinball machines. I was there when the video games all started, beginning with Space Invaders, and it was a grand time to be a kid. You don't see the arcade consoles anymore. We've lost something great in our culture!
Here are 19 classic Atari and Nintendo video games of the past. Enjoy! You can download the games to your computer by right mouse-clicking.

They're not that large in file size, smaller than a typical MP3 song. These are Flash media player files, a free program download if you don't already have the program (you probably do).

(Please note: These .SWF files won't play on their own, because they need to play in a browser, which is why I made separate webpages for each game, as seen above. If you want to play them after downloading the files, simply right mouse click on the file and select "Open with," and then choose Internet Explorer. It may ask you for permission to run script or enable ActiveX Controls. Give permission and the game should play! It does on my computer. You are also very welcome to share these files on your own website too, as is everything on my ministry websites. I am here to serve!) ...
Here is the exact code which makes Pacman work below, which you are welcome to copy to your website. If you want to copy the .SWF game file to your own website (which I recommend), the only thing you need to change is the address of the file. For example: Instead of “http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Miscellaneous/Arcade/pacman.swf,” use, “http://www.thenameofyourwebsite.com/pacman.swf.” If the location of the .SWF file is correct, it will work. You can get the code (as below) for each game simply by right mouse clicking (toward the edge of the webpage). In the drop down menu, select “View page source.” While viewing the source code, search for “.SWF,” and you'll quickly find some code similar to that below. This is the code I use for Pacman..
