First they’re all going to need to be appraised and curated, but yes at some point, you can own a copy of game that was so bad, Atari filled a landfill full of unsold copies in the New Mexico desert hoping they would never be found.

When urban myth becomes truth - the Atari E.T. catridges unearthed at a landfill.

Near the end of the grand run of the Atari 2600, it was rumored that Atari lost so much money producing so many E.T. game cartridges, anticipating a huge hit that turned out to be an enormous flop, that they buried thousands of boxes of unopened E.T. games somewhere out in the desert of the American southwest.

Before some of you are all like “OOOOOOOLD NEWS”, I don’t spend every waking hour on Star Wars fan wikis and circle jerk forums, so this is new news to me.

IHC After Dark: The best worst ET ever

In this version of ET, the alien is no longer cute and lovable, but sort of creepy and lethargic, like a drunken midget. With serious ghetto booty.

Henry Thomas’ original “Elliot” audition tape for ET

Boy, that kid knows how to turn on the waterworks and give a good convincing cry. Unlike a certain soon-to-be-freed ex-mom from Florida. Oh, that never gets old. Okay, so it’s on the verge of getting old, but I’m going to milk the shit out of it.
