    Yep. Quite possibly the worst game ever made was found in a New Mexico landfill. Click to read the entire story here and see a video run-through as well to see just why this game became the precursor to Atari's downfall.

    We had the game - sound was gack, graphics not much better... honestly, the _only_ reason it was purchased was for my sister's birthday who was a huge E.T. nut then. She had more E.T. stuffed animals than I care to remember. Comparatively speaking, we all liked Pit Fall way much better!

    I played that game for years (!) growing up. I am convinced that the most difficult setting was impossible. That, and moon rover.
