The Evil Atari-Chuck E. Cheese Connection

Terrifying fact of the week, brought to my attention recently by my pal Jordi of The
Serious Tip
: the guy who invented the joy that is the Atari 2600 also
created the godless hell that is Chuck E. Cheese
, apparently to indoctrinate
the young'uns into loving video games. (Apparently, back in the olden days,
people were actually concerned that kids wouldn't take to video games like rats to
crack.)

Anyway, in honor of this little factoid, here's an Atari quiz for y'all to
jones on:
