Gravediggers in the Atari Graveyard

Worst video game of all time to be exhumed

Behold: the "worst game ever"

Though this may be news to some, Alamogordo's Atari Graveyard draws visitors to the city year after year just to see a covered up old landfill, which is to say, nothing. Underneath the legendary spot, however, lie a HUGE number -some say nearly the entire existing inventory- of the world's worst video game, "E.T." It was "based" on the 1982 film, but apparently really, really sucked. Supposedly the home video game market was going south as well and that prompted Atari to crush, bury and cover in concrete at least nine semi-trailer loads of the game and consoles (which were manufactured in El Paso.)

I know. It doesn't make sense. But it will make a great documentary, which is why last Tuesday Alamogordo approved the proposal to dig up the Atari Graveyard by entertainment company Fuel Industries.
