Received a Bed Bath & catalog. They have Atari Flashback 6 with 100 games and Sega Genesis with 80 games. Each for $40 Searched each one to see what games are included. They have the normal asteroids and centipede and mortal combat. Not the games I want. What console had Tetris, Pac Man, Mario, Donkey Kong? Was it Ninetendo?
I was really hooked on Tetris

Yeah, Nintendo. Far as I know there's no hardware revival of the original Nintendo Entertainment System

I have an Atari 2600 and many cartridges. I want Tetris and Pacman but don't know if it's Atari, Sega or Ninetendo. I did research for Tetris, found a very confusing explanation at wiki about licensing rights.

Best version of Tetris was on the Nintendo gameboy.

Some of those came out on multiple platforms. Tetris was notoriously Nintendo, and Pacman was famous on Atari, but they both come on other platforms as well.

Pacman was on Atari 2600. We had it.

Tetris was on our original Nintendo.

Do tell...how did you get your Atari hooked up to a modern tv?

A quick search shows it has an RCA plug (like the yellow red and white ones). In this case it's carrying both the audio and the video like coax. They make adapters for this.

If you don't have coax connection on the TV which I would find a little odd there is other adapters to go from coax to whatever.

FYI if you want to play Atari or any other console they have emulators for the PC.

Stella: "A Multi-Platform Atari 2600 VCS Emulator"

And while on the topic:

MAME Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator


There is one for Nintendo but I'm not familiar with it.
