I was thinking about this too, about the market for Atari 2600 games. My local store has tons of carts available as well but they are mostly the boring games - NOT the "must haves".

And at the same time, the Atari Flashback (all models) sell well on Amazon and at Walmart/Target - so there IS a market for this.

Maybe if someone you know with a YouTube channel was *really* into sharing his/her love about retro gaming would do a "Top 10 or even 20 Must Have Games for the Atari 2600" (and help drive up the value of those games too ) then maybe that would be enough to help kickstart the second coming (ok, the 18th) of the console that just won't die.
