    now from what i've heard that it is indeed true, that Atari did bury truckloads of E.T. games in a landfill in new mexico.

    there was a reason they were buried

    I read about this somewhere else. There were also millions of copies of Pac Man buried there, too. Not sure why they are digging them up, as the other article said the copies were all "crushed and then buried" in the landfill.

    The Indiana Jones game was actually good, although very hard to figure out what to do next, it also required the use of both controllers, it was like an early Zelda game

    It was actually the plot of the AvP movie, which is weird.


    I actually just bought an Atari 2600 this last weekend. Eighty bucks for a good condition, wood panel 2600 with six games. Seemed like a fun purchase. I've already gotten my ass kicked in Miss Pacman. I'd love to have one of these awful ET games.
