Its rare for people to discuss bad video games, but an upcoming documentary is doing just that. Atari: Game Over focuses on the truly terrible Atari 2600 game E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial — a game so bad that its often cited as single-handedly bringing down the video game industry in the early ’80s. Legend had it that Atari dumped a massive stockpile of worthless, unsold copies of the game in a New Mexico landfill, and film crews this past April unearthed the cache for the documentary. The documentary was meant to be part of a series focusing on the impact of technology in entertainment and business, but Microsoft recently shut down its entire original content division focused on taking on Netflix.
