Top Ten Ways E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial on the Atari 2600 Sucks

I havent seen the movie but im planning to beacause it looks amazing but the video game on the atari 2600 system sucks so much

The Top Ten

1 It crashed the video game industry

Thanks for establishing this game is terrible mate. Needed clarification. - Puga

Ugh this video game is just awful and terrible - VideoGamefan5

Purple for putrid gameplay... Check!
Blue for bad musical abominations... Check!
Green for graphical farts and garlic... Check!
Yellow for piss-poor lack of loyalty to source material... Check!
Orange for orange you a big idiot... Check!
Red for high-stress anger-inducing masochism... Giant economy-sized check!

2 Broken controls

From what I've experienced the controls aren't horrendously broken. Games like Terminator 2 on SNES has controls more broken that E.T. 2600.

But this video game still sucks though its number 2 on worst video games of all time list - VideoGamefan5

The controls are actually okay. Even though they are clunky, they at least make sense after getting used to it. - LarryLarrington

The controls aren't not broken. The control isn't good either, but it's not broken.

The controls aren't too bad. Sure they can be a bitch, but at least they make sense. Either way, it sill has better control than Winter Games.

3 Terrible graphics

This is the Atari 2600. Of corps the game doesn't look like the movie because the 2600 can do 4 bit graphics.

Uh they don't look like the movie - VideoGamefan5

4 Endless glitches and lag

There may be glitches but I haven't experienced lag. Howard S. Wars haw only had 5 weeks to program this game.

Who knew he only worked on this was this video game on 100$ budget or what - VideoGamefan5

Ugh its awful with the lag - VideoGamefan5

5 You fall into random holes

That's the point of this game. You have to check the wells to obtain the phone pieces to complete a level.

This is just awful and terrile falling into holes - VideoGamefan5

6 Bad visuals

Ugh they look ugly and stupid backgrounds that look generic - VideoGamefan5

7 Bad colors

E.T is green instead of brown what the heck - VideoGamefan5

Should be higher - LarryLarrington

8 It's lame

Its very lame to play this video game - VideoGamefan5

9 The level design is crappy
10 It's poorly done with sounds
