And I'm one of the few who never had a problem with the game...or at least I don't recall as a kid I thought "this totally sucks." IT WAS FUCKING ATARI! ALL of it sucked! 'relatively' speaking, I mean. What do you use to decide a game is "the worst game ever."?
I use to live very close to where they dumped them at. It was never a myth at all that they dumped the ET games there. The myth, and the thing they are still getting wrong, is that this was just a land fill for ET; it was a land fill for a ton of other Atari products.
In reality ET didn't sell that bad, the problem was they made WAY more games than could be feasibly sold. the was also the case with several other games they had made too. If they keep digging, they are more likely to find Pacman cartridges than they are copies of ET.
...am I the only person who disagrees with the whole E.T. Atari was the worst video game every thing? I mean come on people, I think we all know Superman 64 is the worst. Let's just burry this whole E.T. shin-dig...oh wait, Atari already did! XD
