In The Cut: Epic Failure posted at: 13/05/15 @ 08:05 | « back to main
This week on In the Cut, (my segment on Bonnie in the Morning, on NPR Station 88.3 wppb), I spoke about the Documentaries that have been produced by Showtime. I have found many of them to be extremely interesting and very well made. One in particular that I really enjoyed was Atari: Game Over. It talks about the epic failure of the video game E.T. The extraterrestrial. It was an extreme flop for many reasons, and learning about it was very enjoyable. It was the 80's, and it was a time of extreme innovation of video game technology. As interesting as it is for anyone, if you were a kid in the 80's, like me, it might be even more enjoyable.
I highly recommend taking a look at the docs produced by Showtime. It's all good stuff!
Here is a link to the Showtime page and I did find "Atari: Game Over" in full on youtube.
