With the success of Atari's Video Computer System (aka, the 2600) in the 1980s, and the Intellivision and ColecoVision ready to take down the console, Milton Bradley, famous for its board games, came up with the idea of a video game console with a built in screen and controller attached, and all you had to do to set it up was to plug it in, making it a unique concept amongst gamers. However, the system wasn't very well received and died out very quickly, lasting just two years. However, in recent years, people have started making home brew games for the system, much like what has been done to other old consoles of the past, such as the 2600.
