9. Atari Buried Thousands of Unsold Copies of E.T. in the Desert
E.T. is a standout amongst the most notorious and acclaimed sci-fi motion pictures ever. Nevertheless, the computer game that the motion picture produced is regularly referred to as the most dreadful bit of computerized “entertainment” ever sold. The developers at Atari were compelled to meet a crazy due date that gave them just a month and a half to bring out the game.

To exacerbate matters, Atari had produced excessively numerous copies, which left them with a stock surplus they had no clue how to dispose of. A long time later it was supposed that the company dumped them all in a landfill. However individuals thought that it was difficult that Atari would take such a step, thus the story was rejected as just an urban legend. However, everything ended up being totally valid as proved by the 2014 documentary Atari: Game Over in which a group found the landfill and uncovered cartons of dusty old E.T. cartridges.
