    I remember reading that when the ET game for Atari was being designed, the idea for a recreation of what happened in the movie was thrown past Spielberg and he said something like “I was more thinking something like Pac-Man.”

    So it seems that we can conclude that, since the beginning of time, man has yearned to make a movie-tie in that wasn’t merely a clone of some other popular upright vidja game from the arcade. They wanted to make you *PLAY* the movie.

    But they’re all pretty much about as successful as ET, at the end of the day.Report

      If you thought the ET game was a mess but had potential, you can check this out:

      Fixing E.T. for the Atari 2600

      It discusses the bugs in ET and how they can be fixed with some 6502 assembly knowhow and a hex editor. It’s the best analysis and defense of the ET game you’re likely to see this week.Report
