I wonder how badly decomposed the cartridges are.

not much, if at all because those things take hundreds of years to decompose.

True. Being "eco-friendly" wasn't on the radar as much back then.

You might have to settle for a handful of cartridge pieces as I'm pretty sure they crushed them before burying them.

So they did waste the valuable plastic instead of just reusing the cartridges?

No wonder Atari basically died after the 2600.

Meowph, that's right!

Little do they know that I already led a midnight expedition to unearth all the buried carts years ago.

I was about to say shpydar has his own E.T. landfill.

I reckon they'll find a load of Sega consoles we never even knew about, millions of copies of 'top-selling' games from today like Beyond 2 Souls and Leroy Jenkins.

I only posted this to get my avatar as the forum's thumbnail.

they will find the secrets behind the bermuda triangle, the illuminati, the aliens, the drugs communists used to have their ridiculously contradictory ideas, chupacabra and the existance of the universe in that landfill.

The exact opposite of Nintendo, who reprogrammed and redesign all the arcade cabinets of it's failed arcade game to make the successful Donkey Kong in 1981.

The Nintendo way: Our game failed. Let's recycle these components to make a better one.
The Atari way: Our game failed. Oh the shame! Let's bury those damned cartridges to the depths of the earth and never think of this again.
