    Default Breaking news: Diggers find Atari's E.T. games in landfill







    ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) A documentary film production company has found buried in a New Mexico landfill hundreds of the Atari "E.T." game cartridges that some call the worst video game ever made.

    Film director Zak Penn showed one "E.T." cartridge retrieved from the dumpsite and says there are hundreds more mixed in the mounds of trash and dirt scooped by a backhoe.

    Fuel Entertainment is producing a documentary about the search.

    The video game's commercial failure was partially responsible for the demise of Atari in the early 1980s.

    The contents of the "Atari Grave" have become urban legend, with blog posts speculating about millions of cartridges and other Atari projects buried there. A spokeswoman for Atari says the company changed hands many times since 1983 and does not know what is buried there.

    You can play it on an emulator.

    It's not worth the effort though.

    The game is underrated. I still have it for the 2600. It can be a little frustrating, but once you get up there, it's decent.

    He will be reviewing it in Angry Video Game Nerd:The Movie. The film itself is inspired by the saga of the E.T. video game.
