E.T. The Extra Terrestrial
Atari 2600 (1982)
Well, this is one game that I, fortunately, never owned in the 80s. But after watching this video you will see exactly why this was just about the worst video game ever made! Boy this gives me a headache -what the heck is going on?
1982, after releasing the dreadful version of Pac-Man on its 2600
console, Atari then released possibly the worst video game ever - E.T.
The Extra Terrestrial. The rush to release the game in time for
Christmas left programmers with just 2 months to create something half
decent. Well, it was always going to be a disaster and Atari never
really recovered from two incredible blunders during 1982.
Despite changing hands many times, Atari was sold to the Hasbro toy company for just $5 million in 1998, less than a fifth of what Warner Communications had paid 22 years earlier!
Is that ET's hand or is he just pleased to see him?
