The Worst Video Game in History: E.T. The Extra Terrestrial

In 1982, Atari released a video game to cash in on the popularity of the movie E.T. The game for Atari 2600 was rushed to production and has been panned as the worst video game of all time. But did Atari try to cover up their mistake by burying millions of game cartridges in a landfill? In this episode, we talk about the development of the game and find out if the Internet says it’s true. Then we chat with Author, Speaker and Mind-Reader Jonathan Pritchard for the Quick Quiz!
