is his film about this game out yet?
but i don't trust Zak Penn.
doesn't matter, anyway you drove a bus a long a straight road through the desert for 18 hours or something
but this game was made intentionally bad so it sort of doesn't count :)
yeah, it was intentionally made to be a terrible game, in reaction to all the VIOLENCE IN VIDEO GAMES moral panics of the 90s.
why were they looking for them?
or the gaming crash in general and they wanted to find them to see if the rumors were true.
Where the games have mutated while underground, and now that they're exposed, and played, they'll infect the rest of the world's gaming systems and turn the content of every game into a copy of ET.
like in some show I remember when I was a kid that was possibly on CITV about a kid that just threw loads of rubbish under his bed and it turned into a giant monster. i can't remember the name but i feel like Bill Oddie may have been in it.
Like why is it a story that a game company threw out excess stock and why would they make a documentary about trying to dig it up?
it was rushed to market, incredibly poor, and vastly overproduced (something like 2 copies were buried to every one sold, and it sold over a million). the failure of it essentially destroyed Atari.
the amount of time I spent playing it, despite it being borderline unplayable is mindboggling.
although most probably know about it already
imagine if you could win something worth $25k just for being good at GTAV
You could be a guy in the desert, who has to go into all these pits to find something, but it's really hard and it takes ages and...
OMG: we've all been playing this game for 30 years. Atari has been meta-trolling us all this time.
