    Many many years ago (decades) before most of you were even born, there was a game called River Raid on Atari which we hooked up to our TV at home.

    I am wondering if there is such a version that I can play on my laptop?

    Of course I would have to buy a joystick and would very much prefer the very simple, single calibered joysticks that we used to use (OLD BLUE) that will connect to my Windows XP.

    Any opinions, or suggestions please?

    These days, I am feeling very nostalgic (not to mention, old and weary), and I do miss those good old days where life was much simpler.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH. :):eek:

    THANK YOU FOR THE GREAT AND MOST WONDERFUL REPLY.

    I forgot to ask, what kind of joytick should I get for my computer? Will any store joystick work, or should I need one specifically for Atari, if there is such a thing?

    THANK YOU.
