Showcase: Paxton Holley's Custom Atari 2600 Cartridges

"Global Thermonuclear War" from WarGames, "Falken's Maze" from WarGames
"Joshua's Tic-Tac-Toe" from WarGames, "WarGames: NORAD" from WarGames

"Starfighter" from The Last Starfighter, "The Last Starfighter" from The Last Starfighter

"Cloak & Dagger" from Cloak & Dagger, "Space Paranoids" from TRON

"Star Fire" from Midnight Madness, "Starcade" from Starcade

These custom Atari 2600 cartridges, from video games that only existed in movies, calls to mind one of the first entries that I ever wrote for this blog, on Videogame Cinema - and indeed, there's a fair amount of cross-over. I've long wanted to do a follow-up entry on videogames that were invented purely for a TV show or film (and maybe for comics and books, while I'm at it?) and which exist only within that fictional universe. Until I get around to that, this post will have to suffice.
