I hate to break it to you but the Atari 2600 is in my opinion one of the worst made systems ever. These things were not made to last. I have two 2600's, four paddles, two joysticks and a race controller. All four paddles broke because of one simple design error:
The 1/8" plastic tabs that stop the pot inside the controller snapped. I fixed all of them by epoxying a screw where the plastic tab was.
The pots were also very dirty and needed to be disassembled to be cleaned. There was some sort of black goo inside of it, it looked like dirty transmission fluid. It was most likely a sub-par lubricant put into the potentiometers.
The game cartridges however are a superior design to all other cartridges. The connector is actually protected from dust and damage and uses a special locking system so no idiotic siblings could fuck with it.
