Probably a toss up between
Yar's Revenge, Solaris, Stellar Track Stargate and Phoenix.
There are probably a ton of honorable mentions I could go
on with, but I wont.

Each to their own. I like Pitfall myself, but it is not my favorite game by a long shot. Something about it makes it a bit to repetitive, in a not so fun way. JMHO.
But yes, for the time, it was a very well designed (and programmed) game.

- H.E.R.O. (probably my favorite 2600 game)
- Space Shuttle (technically very impressive!)
- Decathlon
- Enduro
- Vanguard
- Galaxian
- Frogger (I love that game on every system)
- Winter Games (great memories when my cousin who had a 2600 got this game from us for Christmas and we played it the whole winter holidays! Hm, I just remember, that must have been Christmas 1987 and at that time my cousin also had an 800 XL already - Winter Games was released on all major system except for the Atari 8 bit which had no really good winter sports game, so we dust the old VCS and had a great time with Winter Games that winter. Btw, I had to order that game in England from some big mail order dealer [I think it was Silica Shop and it was not easy because I had to send them cash GBP, no PayPal or credit card back then], because it was not [yet] available here in Austria.)

I must admit though that there are still many many games for the 2600 that I haven't played yet.

My current favorite 2600 games:

1. Berzerk
2. Subterranea
3. Defender
4. original Pac-Man (hated it when I was a kid because it wasn't like the arcade, but I love it now)
5. Tron Deadly Discs

And 5 games I want to play more of, which I think could become future favorites:

1. Stargate (think I need to build a custom controller for this one)
2. Rescue Terra I
3. Tac-Scan
4. Jawbreaker
5. Killer Satellites
