U. S. Games


Definition Video game company
Founded 1982
Defunct 1983
Created games for Atari 2600

U. S. Games was a video game division of then-conglomerate Quaker Oats that formed in 1982 in order to develop games for the then-popular Atari 2600. Sometimes related to the North American video game crash of 1983, they released 14 games (with varying cartridge designs)[1] and then closed their doors after only a year in operation.

"None of our games became a hit," said spokesman Ronald Bottrell. "Instead of pouring in a lot more capital, we decided to drop it."[2]
