Can't wait to see the documentary on this. Should be interesting. Hopefully they catelgoue everything and release lists and pictures.

E.T. isn't the worst game on that system nor was it unplayable. I finished the game several times.

I blame 2600 Pacman far more than ET- That game was truly a let down and almost nothing like the arcade! The way I see it, people bought Pacman in droves, got irate, stopped trusting Atari and refused to buy ET :)

I still don't know why... why this was a thing. This was never really an urban legend. There was an article in the NY Times, according to Giantbomb, that detailed why they dumped the copies. They never tried to hide it's location, the copies were dump at an actual DUMP... a landfill.

As for the documentary... I now know what happens in the end.
