No love for the Coleco Telstar Arcade?

No, probably not. I've never met anyone else who even knew what the damn thing was, much less had one (to be fair, until recently I couldn't remember the name of the thing either; I had to scour the Internet to find out what it was called). The consoles themselves contained very little circuitry; all the real work was done by chips embedded in the triangular cartridges.

I shouldn't be too down on the machine though; limited as it was, it made me look more seriously at personal computers instead.

No, but we had a Colecovision. My sibs played Smurfs endlessly, and I can still hear the chiptunes version of "'Tis a Gift to be Simple" echoing through my skull. The Donkey Kong theme was so much better.
