Total Failure: The World's Worst Video Game
Howard Scott Warshaw has had many gigs over the years, but perhaps his most notable achievement was also a spectacular failure: "I did the E.T. video game, the game that is widely held to be the worst video game of all time," he says. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial for the Atari 2600 was a commercial flop and a gaming disaster. Based loosely on Steven Spielberg's 1982 blockbuster of the same name, the game was a confusing mess that left players frustrated and disoriented.
