Channel F - The Fairchild
  • Between both Magnovox consoles and all the stuff Atari, Mattel, and Coleco put out the early history of video games is pretty familiar to most people.

    However, there is a console that is almost always over looked when looking back on the history of the industry and that is the Fairchild Channel F console. Here are a couple of very interesting videos giving a bit of history and a look at some of the consoles games.

    I do have to admit that these games had EXTREMELY primitive graphics, evn compared to 2600 games.



    What I find most interesting is the F's 1 handed controller, which with some tweeking might have been a much better controller than the original Atari stick.
