Atari’s Founder Goes Digging in the Desert, but not for E.T.

Everyone's familiar with the great video game burial of 1983, a disposal of Atari 2600 cartridges so bizarre it's often taken to be urban myth. No, that's really how they got rid of colossal flops like E.T. and the Pac-Man port, 30 years ago this September.

Here, Video Games Live thought it'd be funny to pose Nolan Bushnell, Atari's founder, out in the desert, pretending to dig for the lost cartridges (though they were actually crushed and buried under concrete.) (Culture, E.T, Nolan Bushnell)
