You obviously have never player Stroker for the Commodore 64. Be happy.

I fell into those holes 3 times after that I threw the game in the trash. Absolute GARBAGE.😑

Every game is bad if you don't have the manual and for Atari games, that was more than necessary. But to say that ET was the cause of the 1980s video game crash, is bullshit.

I'm definitely getting the hang of.... d'oh

Having the manual would probably have helped. Or I could have told you what you were doing wrong. After all these years, I still remember how to play.

"What are those shapes?" Enter one, fall into pit "How did that happen?" Are you a professional game journalist by any chance?

You should try Desert Bus

You know, the game came with an instruction manual which explains a lot of this. E.T. is bad because everyone says it's bad without giving it a chance. When I was a kid I played this game and enjoyed it, like I enjoyed a LOT of REALLY BAD games that came out back then. Almost all video games were universally terrible back in the late 70s and early 80s. It's just cool to rip on E.T. because of its reputation, and it's a popular opinion to have. There were many, MANY worse games than E.T., but they just aren't as infamous because they are utterly unknown.

This game is not even close to being the worst video game of all time. I played ET for hours in the 80's and had fun. I could easily get rescued by the ship over and over. There are other 2600 titles that are literally unplayable after 2 minutes.
Dahveed (6 months ago)
In order to be one of the cool kids you have to parrot that ET sucks and laugh at it without bothering to read the instruction manual first. It's like watching an idiot blonde trying to drive stick shift without knowing which pedal is clutch, gas or break.

Fake. You obviously played it before and staged the playthrough and reaction.

they should remaster this, ala GTA.

Lego Marvel Superheroes for the PS3: there was no option to reverse the Y-axis on the controller so the flying tasks were pretty much impossible. To be honest, this was pretty much a foreshadowing for the shitshow that Marvel Comics themselves later became.

The Last of Us. Best game ever.

Let this set the precedent for every movie-based game after it.
I'm sorry what? They complained this game is "repetitive"? Did they never play Atari games or what?
Jeff Storm (1 year ago)
Horrifically bad,  When we played it in 1982 it caused us to box up the Atari because it was pure junk.
Norbert H (1 year ago)
Oi, what happens when the counter on bottom runs out.
Dan Howard (1 year ago)
There's actually a fixed version someone made recently which fixed a lot of the collision bugs in ET. Made it not as awful. ;)
SpadeGhostVampire7777 (1 year ago)
How did i know it was E.T? The second worst is the Michael Jackson game because you get get killed by zombies really easily on one level where you would need game genie to finish the game.
Hl A (1 year ago)
Moonwalker was great.
SpadeGhostVampire7777 (1 year ago)
Follow arrows to find holes. In the holes are telephone pieces. You have to beat the game 3x to beat it for real.

i remember one year when i was a kid my nan always got us something for Christmas. back in these days roller blades were the big thing and when i probably made the worst decision of my life, i was either going to get a pair of bauer fx`1 or a tv boy, i obviously picked the tv boy and was easily the biggest load of trash ive ever played. i legit remember on Christmas night finally getting to play it and sitting there as a child almost crying because it was so garbage. had to wait until my birthday to get the bauers, in the meantime my mother bought me some cheap ass pair roller blades made from some flexible material. i spent 3 months going about with wobbly legs on my blades looking like a proper poor cunt

If you count home computers from the 80's, then there's worse. Much, much worse. I recommended the book 'Terrible old games you've probably never heard of' by Stuart Ashen. ( Yes, that Ashens).

this is like something out of a Jontron video
Kajetan Gams (1 year ago)
there is a interesting docu on netflix about this game, the fall of the industry back then and the alleged cartridges burried in the desert called atari: game over
ÆMEROX (1 year ago)
If you think E.T is far worst? Think again. There is one terrible game that was ever created and released on the internet. It's called ZOG's Nightmare. I will never recommend anyone to play that game Dave. Please for the sake of your sanity do not play it. It was used as a recruitment tool for socialist.

This is the only Video game my Dad ever bought for me. This is a Clone of the game Adventure which was released around 1979 a high point of the Atari 2600. The console was on the way out, arcade games were hitting their stride with a strong arcade line up, like Defender Asteroids Deluxe, Robotron, Ms PacMan, Donkey Kong and Centipede. It was not until the Nintendo was released would console game regain some respectability and a niche that arcade games just couldn't fill. Keep in mind there was a lot of distractions around the TV set, The commodore 64 and Vic 20, not to mention the Apple IIe. To say Atari 2600 had a lot of competition is an understatement of the decade. I remember my first computer fair around this time. Most similar to the cellphone market before the Iphone defined the market. IBM had yet to enter the market in a real way but they were set too. CP/M was the dominant OS, but as we know that was about to change.

I remember this game! Such a piece of crap, but a nice bit of nostalgia though. Thanks for taking me there again.
SocialMoth (1 year ago)
We had the "ET" game growing up. Amazingly, we actually beat it once or twice. I actually thought the "Raiders of the Lost Ark" game was pretty bad, too. Btw, I believe those dots were supposed to be reeses pieces. Look at the symbols that show up on the top of the screen. You're supposed to find the parts to make your communication device inside the holes that you drop down.
John Morris (1 year ago)
It does make fun of them though.

I think this game is worse, Femanazi The Triggering. It has 30 genders, safe spaces and other feminist SJW nonsense. http://store.steampowered.com/app/585550/

Lol it's like a crappy version of Pitfall.

My mom had this game because E.T. is her favorite movie. My dad had the Atari, frankly there were many better games we owned. Every time I played the game, I got stuck in that fucking pit.

This is not the worst game ever. Superman for the Nintendo 64 was unplayable due to the controls. E.T. is actually playable if you know what you are doing.

Awesome! I owned this game. Dad bought me an Atari and like 30 games for super cheap at a garage sale. The manual was not included and this was pre-internet, I had no ****ing idea what to do.

Ride To Hell: Retribution is a game that is unplayable. Literally unplayable because of how buggy and unfinished it is from what I've seen from a few YouTube reviews. That's about it.

Anyone ever play the abomination known as Rascal on PSX? I traded in Oddworld for it in 4th grade. I've been a failure ever since.

Good to see you taking a break from the SJW nonsense. It's good to see you comically frustrated.

You are supposed to fall into very specific pits that have the phone pieces in them, and watch the fedora guy. He'll steal your pieces. It is sad that I have never played this game, but know what you are supposed to do in it.
Les Burris (1 year ago)
I had ET as a kid, I have memories of rage quiting that stinky pile of crap so many times when I was like 5. It was 1 of like 6 Atari games we had, so I would always end up trying it again. Thankfully the NES came along and soon after and I never played it again.
Pivotkid85 (1 year ago)
what do the numbers on the bottom represent?
TurboCMinusMinus (6 months ago)
The 4 digit number is your energy meter. Run out and you die, although you can get revived. The single digit number is your reeses pieces counter. Pressing the button can eat one in certain areas based on the symbol.
Xiefux (1 year ago)
Pivotkid85 since the number goes smaller when he moves, i guees its somekind of a time limit. When it hits zero i think you fail.
Riceyes ytty (1 year ago)
Worst game I can think of that I've ever played is the witcher 3.

AZAdventure (1 year ago)
Dave, when I was a very young kid I had a friend that owned that game.  Every time I asked to play ET, it was always followed up with a very quick "NO!" That's when it became a joke.  Our whole gang would force him to play until he got mad and turned off... good times!

Aliens: Colonial Marines was a collosal fuck up and was released before bug testing was finished. What should have been a great game based on sneak previews turned out to be one of the worst modern games. Full of errors, bugs, AI was severely broken. Just such a disappointment

The movie sucked too!

Your soundtrack - that was me. Playing every game. Never understanding anything. Saying things like "That's not fair!". Having my hubby tell me just turn it off or I won't be able to sleep. I DID like Pong though - I think I ruined my eyesight playing that sucker in the dark.
MMODoubter (1 year ago)
The 2600 did have some pretty good games. Decathlon was a lot of fun (though it killed many joysticks), and Pitfall was impressive. Later on, I got a big cartridge that suped up the graphics a ton. Only got a couple of games for it, though.
richard343s (1 year ago)
Remember when rushed overhyped games wasn't a thing? Me neither.

That was fun, man! I remember there should be a geranium in one of the wells, though, and it was supposed to give E.T. an extra life. And those are Reese's Pieces that he was collecting for energy. LOL!

ET is utter shit, but if you want a modern game that is an atrocity/sin against gamers everywhere, Ride to Hell: Retribution is the title for you. From voice acting that sounds like some interns just read the script during editing and were secretly recorded doing so to nearly unplayable broken gameplay to scenes where you are literally reward for doing things such as MURDERING WOMEN'S ABUSIVE BOYFRIENDS IN THE SAME ROOM is fully clothed, pitifully animated sex with said women, this game is insulting and offensive to the nth degree (even if you're not the type to get offended often). Many have tried, but few have actually pushed onwards to see the (equally shit) ending-- for more information (including the game's tragic development backstory), see Angry Joe and The Completionist's reviews.
