River Raid is a scrolling shooter designed by Carol Shaw and published by Activision for the Atari 2600 in 1982. It was later ported to many different platforms.

River Raid is the very first memory I have of ever seeing a video game being played. I don't remember if my family had bought a used Atari 2600, or was borrowing it, but it was around 1985. I though the game was really cool, and I remember my brother and his friend from across the street trying to figure out how to play the game, and learning that you shouldn't shoot the fuel tanks, because you needed them to keep flying, but you had to shoot the bridges, or you'd crash into them. I don't remember if I played the game then or not, but it certainly left a lasting impression on me.
