I purchased a stand alone Tetris game made by Radica a few years ago at WalMart. It's 3"x6"x1" with a big square movement knob. Connects to TV RCA, has White and Yellow plugs. I connect it to a 19" Vizio
Problem is slow process speed. There is a lag between turning knob and action on screen. So when game speeds up, falling piece can't be turned fast enough. Game over.

Do tell...how did you get your Atari hooked up to a modern tv?
I hooked my Atari up to my big screen at home. I think it was an FM trap that I had to plug into the coax and then plug the Atari into the FM trap. Will have to look at it when I get home.

Haven't played the Atari in awhile and the last time I found that Donkey Kong cartridge would play and then freeze on the second or third level. The other games seem to play OK though.

I'd imagine the controllers are hot item, they worked on C64 too. I had one permanently stuck in forward position from playing Pitstop, that was the gas.
