The lights are on
Back in the early days of video games, before virtual Achievements and Trophies, Activision offered players the opportunity to earn physical patches for their high scores. In the video below, Tim Turi attempts to obtain the high scores necessary to obtain an Activision patch in games like Pitfall, its sequel, and Kaboom.
Check out the video below to see how many patches we are able to earn.

I wish I could earn a patch.
i would love for this to be a stress test series, i want tim to get his "patch"
Watching this video it got me thinking. How the hell did I make it pass the Atari era without killing myself, those games were brutal.
So we get two Replays on a Tuesday? Sweet.
Cool feature and a nice look back at the old atari games.
Pitfall's scoring was insane for earning patches. Just saying. For me anyway.
This was great. More Kyle and Tim
I remember saw old game activision by ps2
Great video! I would love to see a series out of this if you guys have the extra time. I feel like it would be fun to watch to see how well the GI crew does.
Activision patches were awesome back in the 80's. I had patched Megamania, River Raid, Sea Hunt and Pitfall. I wish I still had my patches.
Man, I loved the Pitfall series. Those are the games that I miss the most since my Atari stopped working.
