And I have to say, the game received a very bad rap and it wasn't that bad.

Granted it was an Atari game and virtually all Atari games suck by todays standards but after hearing all this "worse game ever" rants from various people I decided to try it out myself.

After finishing it I realized a few things:

1: If you can't get out of the pit you are retarded. After finding out how to do it it was pretty easy not to fall in again.
2: If you know how to use all the abilities of E.T. it made the game a lot easier.
3: Dustin Pedroia is god.

I just think the game gets a bad rap, it was made ages ago and most people who complain about it just didn't know how to play. Granted many were children at the time and were traumatized by the game but it was pretty easy once you stop being a spastic.

I guess beating the worst game ever deserves some bragging rights. Good job. I miss my Atari. I still have some games for it (including E.T. oddly enough) but I don't have an Atari. One of these days I'll have to try and find a working one.
