Name's the Same: When a stone is surrounded by opposing stones on all but one side, it is said to be in Atari.
This game was actually the inspiration behind the name in the first place. Additionally, after Atari split into two companies, the arcade company (Atari Games) established a console division called "Tengen", which is also a Go term note It's the center point on the board. Nolan Bushnell (the original founder) even went on to acquire a company that he eventually renamed after another Go term: "Sente"note Which essentially refers to a player who has the advantage; the opposite term is "gote".
