What was Atari’s best-selling game of all time?

What was Atari’s best-selling arcade game of all time? If you answered Asteroids you are correct! Released in November 1979, what do you remember most from that time in history?

"Released in November 1979, what do you remember most from that time in history?"

 

November 1979 — The Iran Hostage Crisis! Every day, for 444 days, the evening news led with a graphic behind most anchors reading "Day 23," "Day 166," "Day 378," up until they were released. I was in grade school and didn't understand what was going on. But I remember the news coverage.
