I'm kind of going through the retro game thing. The 7800 is good because it plays 2600 games and has some of its own. But do I want a 5200 also? Is there some really cool stuff for it, too?

I owned both a 2600 (I still have 2 of them!) and a 7800, but never a 5200. I can't really think of anything that was exclusive and must-have for the 5200 though, I just remember it came with Ms. Pacman and that was huge at the time, and this kid I knew had one.

If you have a 7800, find the game Impossible Mission. That was the greatest game on the 7800, besides Xevious, of course. Namco ruled even back then.
