Here is an idea that came to me playing Atari... What about a cart adaper? But since the original Atari carts are too bulky, release new ones! With modern technology, it wuld be possible to make an Atari cart that is smaller than a gameboy cart. With the base unit, include one game, say Combat :) , and then people could buy more "mini Atari" carts for low prices say 3-4$. That way, you could add games to the lineup as often as you wanted. Just a thought, I don't know how practical it would be though...

I believe that Atari bought some of the defunct game companies, like Imagic. So there is a bit more of a list. Activision and the other surviving companies might not want to have their games on there.

There are other games like:

* Frogs and Flies
* Basketball
* Baseball

That were not listed. Now I notice that there are many games with a 2-player element. The Gameboy Advance will allow a 2-player element, so feel free to list those games too.

Paddle Control games are not out of the question either. With the Left and Right top buttons, they could simulate a paddle control (if we decide to use those buttons as a paddle control). Circus Atari and Warlords (for example) would work well with this idea. Though, the player would have to get used to the controls.

I hope this clears up some misconceptions that everyone has been having and can list more games that they love.
