They didn't just buried other terrible games but a few good games too. Centipede for one was a great game that ends up being bury like crap with E.T. and Rocky III. I'm glad Atari is dead now.

The funny thing about that Rocky III parody is that there is an actual prototype A-Team 2600 game where you play at Mr. T's head. It also happened to be made by the maker on ET, Howard Scott Warshaw. It started out at a game named Saboteur, which is on the Atari Flashback 2.
