Atari Lynx gaming console, a game changer.
I happened to be at the right place at the right time (Silicon Valley in late 1980s) to get a chance to design one of the most famous early hand-held gaming consoles. While not a gaming addict myself, I can see why the Atari Lynx was so exciting. It was a powerful system with the first colour screen. It was great to hold and intuative to play.
By today’s standards this hand-held gamer seems very big, but I was specifically asked to design a big, comfortable-to-hold machine. Focus groups told Atari this was cool!
Keen gamers might want to see reviews of the Atari Lynx.
Like any enthusiast, gamers just want to tell the world about how good, or bad, their favourite machine is.
