Atari was the best (for a little while).  We had Pong, Space Invaders. Asteroids and one other one I can’t remember ever playing.  Atari wasn’t my favorite …

My favorite?  My brother and I had two handheld games, Mattel’s Football and Basketball.

I played the Football game until the buttons fell off.  (Then I glued them back on and played some more.)  I don’t still have it, of course, but I do have this 2001 re-issue key chain game:
