Graveyard of Atari games found in landfill, including E.T.
It is thought that nine articulated lorries full of ET games and other Atari toys visited the landfill back in '83.
Commissioners in Alamogordo have agreed to allow Fuel Industries to ferret around in the landfill for games, which apparently includes the sought-after ET video, which also happens to hailed as the worst game ever made.
Atari paid Steven Spielberg tens of millions of dollars to license the name of movie, but it was such a lousy game that it put Atari in financial trouble. Naturally, it has become a cult favourite since.
Alamogordo commissioner Jason Baldwin said he played the Extra-Terrestrial game and it was "horrible".
