I'm very proud to be the owner of 4 sealed parker games. They are still originally sealed with plastic, never opened.
I also have a never opened sealed Demon Attack grey. The sealed games were in a box with other games together with a very, as good as
new, Siera console. I think the one and only first owner never took time to play with it and dumped it in a neat box in the attic so that
the games and console could wait more then 35 year for me to be the next owner Smiley

Congratulations Elias. Nice find.

It took some time for me, to find all 4 Parker games sealed. But I am also proud of them.

You wrote, that you have a sealed grey Atlantis. But I think, itīs a sealed Demon Attack, when I look at the pictures. Sealed Imagic games are really rare. Itīs difficult to get them in good condition.

I am very happy, that I have my grey Demon Attack since the eighties in very good condition. Yes, I was ever good to my games. Of course I opened it and play the game back in the days.... Shocked

Damn, how could I open it... Cheesy

Thanks. Ah, you're right. Demon Attack off course. Duh, where was I ?  Cheesy. Nice that you've also got Parker sealed games! I have all the games also unsealed in good condition. Demon Attack / Atlantis both also unsealed in grey and yellow. I also have an Atlantis of which the cartridge is in good condition, but the box in very very bad condtion (grey). Want to sell that in the future.

The same here:  Parker games unsealed in good condition and sealed, and Imagic games in yellow and grey.

Why could we find Paker games sealed, but it`s damn hard to find Imagic games in good condition  Huh?

Picture looks great! I think the boxes of Imagic games are too fragile to stay in good condition after so many years  Smiley. When you have to take out the cartridge you have to take the whole inside plastic out. I can imagine that gamers left the inside plastic out of the box while playing and that left a fragile outside box on the floor : Oooops, I just stood on the Imagic box on the floor..... Cheesy

Yeah, some Imagic boxes look exactly that happens.  Cheesy

Parker had great stable game boxes. After so many years, many of them have a good condition.

But the OSCAR goes to ............. Philips, for the amazing Videopac plastic boxes!  Grin

Keep in mind that shrinkwrap tends to shrink more over the years and it will eventually warp or dent your weaker boxes. I'm sure the Parker boxes won't be affected but I would keep an eye on your Imagic's.

When I find sealed Atari games I unseal them.

You unseal a sealed Atari game  Huh? ........ Shocked Shocked Shocked

There is a reason, why Atari games were sealed. Someday you open Pandora`s box when you break the seal.
