Here's some news that will probably make your week less productive. The Internet Archive recently posted a huge trove of vintage console video games from the 70s and 80s. I'm talking atari twenty six hundred. I'm talkin Coleecovision. And yes, The Astrocade. You can play in a browser or download  the simple sofware. If you need me I'll be working my way through California Games.
