Buried E.T. cartridges to be excavated

The unsold copies of Atari's E.T. game are to be dug up from landfill as part of a documentary.

I can't wait to find out the result of this. I've always wondered if the myth is real!

It's always been such a bizarre story. I'd be surprised if they actually find any of the cartridges at the landfill though. Who knows, they might find Hoffa instead.

While you're waiting for the site to be excavated, here's a great read about a guy who patched the bugs in ET to make it a considerably better game.

I was completely oblivious to this game being billed as the worst game ever - but I was never interested in playing it at the time. I feel like I've missed out.

On the other side on the coin - the best 2600 game, for me, was River Raid. The amount of time I spent on it probably rivals that of heavily addicted WoW gamers.

Great link there. I hated that game for the exact reason stated in the video, I got it second hand and it had no manual. No clue what to do except fall in pits and die over and over.

@Spreadie - Pitfall! was a great game too. Sometimes I actually miss those old games, well not really. Still play my NES though lol.
