The Atari 2600 E.T. Video Game Is Still Terrible, Even When It's Finished In Less Than 30 Seconds

You know the story. Almost everyone who wielded a joystick in the 1980s does: the tie-in game for Steven Spielberg's E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was so unplayably bad that it almost single-handedly sank the first wave of video game infatuation.

An experience like that needs to be put in its place. That's exactly what speedrunners Adelikat & Cardboard do in this tool-assisted speedrun, smashing through the terrible Atari 2600 game in 25.25 seconds. Impressive as this run is, just watching this game run dredges up all sorts of bad memories. Ugh.


    What is this I don't even?

    So I just watched a tool assisted speedrun by a tool in a tool assisted paragraph written by a tool? Thus am I a tool assistor or the tool of a tool? I am normally just a tool.

    I remember playing this piece of shit. It never made any sense. Some build a phone crap concept that made for a really terrible "game".
