Atari E.T. carts found in Alamo.

»www.kob.com/article/stories/S341···?cat=500

Looks like the urban legend about Alamogordo, NM being the dumping ground for this bomb of a game may be true. Turns out that the documentary crew has actually found some of the carts - box, instructions, and actual cartridge.

Many of the games still fully functional.
Get ready to play one of the worst Atari games ever!

I had E.T on my old Atari 2600. I wasn't very old, maybe 5 or 6, but that game frustrated the hell out of me. Once you fell in one of the numerous pits, it was all over.

Stupid game.....I still hate it.

I had that game back in the day too. I don't recall hating it that much, but I remember it being frustrating to play.

I have a copy of this game courtesy of a step-grandmother...she heard I liked video games a couple years back and gave me around 20 Atari cartridges she found in her basement (as well as a SNES pad still in the box). Too bad I don't have an Atari to play it on!

I had that game too.... and will always remember it, because it was responsible for the loss of my video game innocence. I remember eagerly anticipating that game for Christmas and being simply bewildered once I played it and realized what an enormous piece of crap it was. Until that moment I had never conceived the possibility that such a majorly hyped game could be such total crap.

I remember that game being fun, if a little difficult.

Interesting read, relevant:
