Seasonal Anime Checkup OVA–The X-Rated Games of the Atari 2600

This week, Jared and I decided to dive into my dissertation research a bit and talk about one of the most fascinating and bizarre things about the early video games industry–the X-rated Atari 2600 games released in 1982 and 1983. We talk about the games in detail, talk about their contribution to the video game crash of 82-83, and we talk about the trajectory of adult games after these games were long gone and mostly forgotten.

CONTENT WARNING: This episode contains discussions about adult themes, sex, and scenes of rape in a video game.
