Though Grambling State 's Eddie Robinson did not invent classic games, he is widely regarded as having perfected them as revenue-generating social events, and a chapter of his autobiography details his efforts at doing so. At present, however, Durham, North Carolina is a host to three annual classics and a fourth informal classic that is held there during even-numbered years; it also formerly used to host one called the Midway Classic  and another called the Labor Day Classic  not to be confused with the existing classic of the same name based in Dallas.
Game formats[ edit ] Football classics come in three different kinds of formats. Other classics, particularly those based in the northern and western U.
Classics that do double as annual rivalry games sometimes consider the first game played under a classic-format as separate from the actual first game of the series, due to the pronounced differences in ambience surrounding the games.
One of the more noteworthy annual games that later converted into a classic was the Southern— Tennessee State series.
Known as the Buck—Boar Classic starting with the contest, the losing school was required to hunt wild game that was to serve as the main course of the winning school's meal at their annual sports banquet—if SU lost, it was to hunt for deer in Louisiana's swamps and deliver the venison to TSU's banquet; if TSU lost, it was to hunt for wild hogs in the Tennessee mountains and deliver the ham to SU's banquet.
By the same token the Sugar Cup Classic—which was hosted yearly by Grambling, initially in New Orleans—offered an alternative to the segregated Sugar Bowl. The third kind of classic—those featuring two different opponents each season—often occur outside of the southern U.
These games have long appealed to those who were part of the Great Migration and were nostalgic to see teams from their home states.

The future of classic-style football games[ edit ] As participants of the Great Migration have begun to age, it remains to be seen if their descendants and others from completely different demographic groups can sustain games that focus on teams from regions of the country that they are less familiar with.
Indeed, several classics that were held in the North  and West  have ceased since Eventually Atari began to license popular arcade titles such as Taito's Space Invaders, driving sales to over 30 million units for the life of the console. Ultimately the Atari was sold from until and there were over game titles created for the system. Everyone who grew up in the s remembers the iconic wood grain look of the Atari and the feel of its black rubberized joysticks.
This was the console that showed the world that their television could be more than just a passive "boob tube". The ushered in a whole new industry that was unimaginable just a few years before.
We at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo recognize the contributions of the industrial designers, programmers and artists who brought this tenacious game console into the living rooms of the world.
For the 40th anniversary of the Atari VCS, we have planned a special series of panels covering the hardware, games and history of the system.
We are bringing industry experts and alumni from Atari and other third-party companies to share the rich history of the system with our attendees. In addition, we will have an arcade full of Atari systems that our guests can touch, play and enjoy throughout the weekend.
And we have a special surprise. One of the most iconic things about Atari games was the incredible hand-painted artwork that was used on the game boxes and cartridges.
While the games themselves were primitive due to the limitations of the technology, Atari used the package artwork to tell the story of each game and draw users into new worlds. The visual storytelling on the box allowed a few pixels to become a medieval knight or a blocky duck-looking thing to become a fierce dragon.
One of the original artists behind the Atari package art is Steve Hendricks. He created the artwork behind such classic Atari titles as Defender, Haunted House and Warlords.
