Happy Birthday Atari, Donkey Kong

Here’s a couple of neat anniversaries for you. As noted by GoNintendo, we have two birthdays this week. Atari turns 40 on June 27; gloss over the great crash and remind yourself the company was responsible for making video games a thing people understood, paving the way for the NES and, you know, our entire industry. Meanwhile, king of the arcade Donkey Kong, the father of Mario, hits 30 years on Saturday. Bless.
