Throwback Thursday: E.T. (Atari 2600)

All he wanted to do was phone-home. Well, this game wont even give you the chance. Ms. Throwback plays possibly the worst game ever made in E.T. The Extra Terrestrial (Atari 2600).

  1. I think E.T. is bad. But it isn’t the worst game ever made. It functions. It’s fascinating in that the man who gave us Yar’s Revenge made it in an insanely short amount of time. The problem with it is it is boring. Fall into pit. Climb out. Fall into pit. Climb out. Fall into pit with a phone piece. Grab the part. Climb out. Get captured by FBI Agent who takes all of the phone pieces away from you. Fall into pit. Climb out. If you can stick with it, it is beatable. Beating the game lets you see Elliot walk around his house while the E.T. theme plays.

    As boring as it is, it isn’t what I’d call worst ever. There are far worse games. Like Action Girlz Racing.

    1. I’d tend to agree with you except that it isn’t just boring. At times it doesn’t even function. If you watch through the review you will see two major glitches, one that doesn’t even allow me to finish the game, which makes me start over.
